Hello James,

Am 23.05.2022 um 19:31 schrieb James H. H. Lampert via MIDRANGE-L <midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:

If I look at the user profile, I see PRTDEV(*WRKSTN) and OUTQ(*WRKSTN), and if I do a DSPJOB on my terminal session, I see that I'm going to PRT01, which is a real printer with a writer job.

Is there any trick to making sure my spool files never go to a started printer, without having to find out whether there's a "guaranteed never to be started" printer device on the system?

I honestly can't answer your question. But maybe an alternative approach is feasible?

I guess this queue is shared by multiple users, if there's a physical printer attached. Thus I won't mess with it. Instead, I'd change the user profile or current job to an OUTQ you've just created yourself.

:wq! PoC
