if you have special printer definitions (Workstation customizing object)
for limited use printing like annual W2's , or remote printing for annual
auditors, etc.
You also appear to assume outqs have same name as printers?

Of these 46 printers only 2 had any output queue entries. All were prior

Subject: Dormant printers

Assuming disk is no object and you keep audit journals for a long time,
And you have spool auditing turned on,
Do you see any flaws with finding dormant printers by using the following?

SELECT *
FROM TABLE(QSYS2.OBJECT_STATISTICS('QSYS', '*DEVD'))
WHERE OBJATTRIBUTE LIKE 'PRT%'
and not exists(
SELECT *
FROM TABLE (QSYS2.Display_Journal('QSYS', 'QAUDJRN',
STARTING_TIMESTAMP => CURRENT TIMESTAMP - 30 DAYS,
STARTING_RECEIVER_NAME => '*CURCHAIN'
) ) AS X
WHERE SUBSTR(OBJECT, 11, 10) = 'QUSRSYS'
AND SUBSTR(OBJECT, 1, 10) = OBJNAME
AND OBJECT_TYPE = '*OUTQ'
)
;

I found just under 50 this way.
