OK so in this case they are still all going to OutqB.
Where should I put the SECURE?
the first cl:

OVRPRTF FILE(REPORT) PRTTXT(BLANK) OUTQ(OutqA) +

OVRSCOPE(*CALLLVL)

CALL PGM(ProgramA) /* PRINT A */


DLTOVR *ALL
CALL PGM(ProgramB)

ENDPGM

That is sufficient. However DLTOVR *ALL seems to me to be quite too
drastic: (1) It defaults to LVL(*ACTGRPDFN), which may be broader than
the OVRSCOPE(*CALLLVL) which you specified on the OVRPRTF. (2)
FILE(*ALL) may have a wider effect than just the OVRPRTF FILE(REPORT)
which you show us. So I suggest merely
DLTOVR FILE(REPORT) LVL(*CALLLVL)
to avoid imposing a double take on the next person who reads the
program.



(CL) ProgramB:

DLTOVR FILE(*ALL)
OVRPRTF FILE(REPORT) PRTTXT(BLANK) OUTQ(OutqB) +
FORMTYPE(INV) HOLD(*YES) SAVE(*YES) +
OUTPTY(1) OVRSCOPE(*JOB)

SECURE(*YES) on this override would redirect your printout as you want,
but I see a couple of difficulties here ...

(1) OVRSCOPE(*JOB) is too broad. It will redirect REPORTs for the rest
of the job. Subsequent REPORTs will be hard to find because on OutqB,
hard to read because on presumably preprinted formtype INV, and
expensive to the extent that the form is expensive.

(2) I think you meant PRTTXT(*BLANK).

(3) If OUTPTY(1) means that printing invoices is urgent, that is fine.
However, if perchance you merely want to minimize form changes, you
might find STRPRTWTR FORMTYPE(*FORMS) more effective.

I suggest that you create a separate print file for invoices and change
the invoice program to name that file. The whole question of a second
OVRPRTF goes away.

Cheers,
Terry.

After rpgprogramA completes, DLTOVR printer_file_name

I am wondering if you are also including on the first OVRPRTF
SECURE(*YES). Doing that stops the override in program B from having
any effect.

Sorry, John, but I think it is the other way around, so to speak: it is
the (implicit) SECURE(*NO) on the the override in program B which makes
the override in program B ineffective. Consider ...

Outer program ...

pgm

/* three overrides, only the last one secure(*yes) */
ovrprtf one outq( a_outer )
ovrprtf two outq( b_outer )
ovrprtf three outq( c_outer ) secure(*yes)

/* call inner program */
call aa4382

endpgm

inner program ...

pgm

/* three overrides, only the second one secure(*yes) */
ovrprtf one outq( a_inner )
ovrprtf two outq( b_inner ) secure(*yes)
ovrprtf three outq( c_inner )

/* show results */
dspovr

endpgm

Quoting Adam West <adamster@xxxxxxxxx>:

I have CL program-A,
pgm
program-A.

Overprtf outq(A)
Call rpgprogramA




Call program-B ( a CL PROGRAM)

Endpgm



This is program-B
pgm
Overprtf outq(B)
Call rpgprogramB
endpgm
BUT the outq of the second CL goes to the first outq - outq A

I need them to split. I have played around with the Ovrscope
parameter but then when I make that *job or *Calllvl, the both
outputs go to Outq B.

WHat am I missing to have them split off?
