I believe that the USRDFNOPT parameter is attached to the output queue 
and/or printer file.  You would not be able to get this parameter through 
spool API's.

You could try and use DSPFD to a spool file, then read the spool file in a 
program (I haven't tested to see if it is possible to list the USRDFNOPT 
when DSPFD to *OUTFILE).  For output queue values, you could use WRKOUTQD 
to *PRINT, then read the spool file in a program.

In fear of stating the obvious, but for completeness sake, print to a 
printer file with HOLD = *YES.  Have your program do a CPYSPLF of the spool 
file created to a data base file, then read.

"All great discoveries are made by mistake."

The project I am presently working on requires me to produce a summary of 
reports generated, including data entered to any of the four USER DEFINED 
OPTION fields (USRDFNOPT) in the spool file attributes. Using the API's
I have been able to obtain the necessary data - EXCEPT - the USER DEFINED 
OPTION fields (USRDFNOPT). I have looked through the "OS/400 Print APIs 
V3R7" manual, but I am unable to locate how this data is to be obtained. If 
anybody knows if there is a "trick" to obtaining this data, I would be very 
grateful for their help.
