send job output to specific printer

Postby Tzadik Vanderhoof » Wed Nov 14, 2007 3:40 am

I know there is a TSO command to send a dataset to a certain printer like this
PL datasetname printername

(I think PL means "print landscape").

Is there a similar way to send held job output to a specific printer?

I believe PL is site-specific - rather than part of the IBM standard release.

Ask your system support people for the printer-id(s) of the printers you can route output to.

When you look at output in the held output queue, you can modify the output to be printed and the destination where it should print.

You might also ask your support people if there are any (other) short-cut commands available to you.
Hope this helps,
