The data queue entry contains the user name that the spool file comes from,
as well as the fully qualified path and file name of the PDF (very handy).
I used an RPG program that I run in batch that does a read/wait for a data
queue entry to hit, and when one comes in, the program just formats the
fields and writes my log.  You should be able to use CLP to receive from
that data queue and parse the data queue entry into CL variables that you
can use for command processing, like the MOV command.  The user name from
the data queue can be used to set the IFS folder if need be.

Is the binary format you are referring to the data queue format?  If so,
Appendix E.2 has the layout in the Printing VI redbook.

Good catch Charles,

I had forgotten all about the DataQueue.
BTW, if you used CLP in this case I would be interested to know the correct
format of that binary. I could not get it to work.
Then I also realized I would have to make more changes to handle multiple
users with similar looking dataqueue entries.
I did not create a logging file to reassemble the destination.
That could be embarrasing to mess up, but so far I am just testing.
