Have a look at CVTJOBSPLF. You can loop through the file it creates.

BIGJOB creates 3 different spool files with the same name - CUSTRPT.  Today the spool file numbers happen to be #'s 65,66, and 67.

In my email pgm, I can only select *LAST (which would only send report # 67), or I can select a specific #, such as 65 or 66 or 67.  But I don't know the number.

What is the best way to handle this?

Name each spool file differently?  Then I can name the three files CUSTRPT1, CUSTRPT2, and CUSTRPT3, and select each one.

Or, is there a way to retrieve the *LAST spool file number, and the (*LAST minus 1) spool file, and (*LAST minus 2) spool file?

Or a better method?

I see an API coming my way.   Is there a SIMPLE way to do this - ie not using an API?

For example, RTVSPLFA (*LAST minus 2)  ??  I have TAATOOLS if that helps.
