It looks like the system is generating a separator page.

Try CHGWTR FILESEP(0) for each writer in question. The FILESEP parameter is also available on STRPRTWTR command but not STRRMTWTR. For remote writers, check the outq description for job separators.

Hope this helps.

Subject: QSPLJOB report being generated

We have a particular report generating program that is generating a mysterious additional page every time the program is run. The desired report prints fine but an additional page with the following information is always printed immediately afterwards.

Class: OurSerialNumber

PACKLISTNP is the name of the print file being used to generate the desired report.

We recently migrated from V5R4 to a new 720 running V6R1. This was not happening on our old system. This leads me to believe I need to change a system value, the QSPLJOB user profile, or the QDFTJOBD that QSPLJOB uses for a job description in order to get the desired results I want, which would be to suppress this additional report from printing. I don't know what needs to be changed though. I have seen some posts in the archives that talk about suppressing job logs from printing, but this doesn't look like a job log issue to me. I've also verified that the QSPLJOB user profile and QDFTJOBD are the same on both the old and the new system.
Can anyone offer some suggestions, or let me know what would be the reason this additional report is being generated?

Thanks in advance.
