I feel like such an idiot. It was an OVRPRTF that lingered. I wrote a
command to replace the // PRINTER statement for a different reason, but
neglected to DLTOVR. Which would not have been an issue except that the
S36E package we use named every @#$% printer file the same name.

There are only a few OCL procedures that currently use the command, but a
few are frequently used processes. This is what made it so maddening
because it reared its head randomly (or so it seemed).

Thanks for slapping me upside the head, Jim.

An override printer file (ovrprtf) in the job stack could do this.

Also, because the // printer statement is optional, is it possible the
printer statement is not functional if the printer output file in pgm not
same as ocl printer name ?

Also, meant to say that I did check the job log after the incident today
(when the invoice wanted to print at BB even though it should have been
directed to P7). There were no messages in the job log, and it shows the
PRINTER OCL statement explicitly referencing P7, but nothing later except
the normal stuff.
