I'm not sure that is what it means - I've seen SPLFs in DSPJOB that were printed, those are marked as FIN.

From a post in 2006, "Any of the spoolfiles [when using WRKSBMJOB or WRKUSRJOB] which have either been printed or been deleted will have a status of 'FIN' meaning finished."

Pretty sure FIN means that the spool file was opened but never written to.

I see these only when accessing the spooled files from WRKUSRJOB. We do not see these with WRKSPLF. And we definitely do not see them from ACS printed output.

Subject: ACS & FIN spooled files

In ACS Printer Output I used the filter to show spooled files for a
specific job. ACS gave an error message and prompted me to generate
service logs. IBM support tells me this is because spooled files exist at
a FIN status, and ACS is working properly. They suggest changing QSPLFACN
from the default of *KEEP to *DETACH.

Anyone familiar with that system value? Are they any other considerations
regarding changing it from the default?
