I noticed something interesting today.

I wrote a simple program that uses API's QSYGETPH and QWTSEP to swap to
another users profile.

However, whenever a spool file is created from this job after "the swap"  it
ends up being associated with a QPRTJOB job instead of the interactive job
in which it was created. 

This makes it difficult, within a program, to create a Spoolfile and then
access it for further processing. 

For example. I have a program that creates a profile listing (DSPUSRPRF XXX
*PRINT) and then sends the listing it to someone. The program creates the
Spoolfile QPUSRPRF, which is then processed like this: SNDNETSPLF
FILE(QPUSRPRF) JOB(*) SPLNBR(*LAST)   

Specifying  ' * '  for  JOB .....

Well since that the Spoolfile isn't associated with JOB(*) ... It is
associated with that other job named QPRTJOB which was created under the
"swapped to" user ID, the SNDNETSPLF command fails because it can't find the
file. 

I can't think of an easy way to handle this.  Has anyone written any code to
handle this situation? It would probably be code written for a server
process that accepts incoming requests from another user and then swaps to
that user to run....

Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanx!
