View Full Version : Outqueue Transfers
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
Forgive me if this question is facile, but I need to know if I can transfer the contents of an outqueue down to my PC more than one file at a time. A bit like the mget *.* command in some flavors of unix. I am well acquainted with creating physical files and copying over spooled files to the PF, then downloading them to my PC via Client Access. Are there any tools to allow multiple files to come down too? My boss wants us to keep everything (yes, everything) that is every sent to the system printer. It would be nice to bring this info to PC, burn it to CD and move on. I am using a 170 AS400, about 2 years old, running V4R1. We don't have optical storage on the 400 and our 400's offboard storage is limited to tape, no diskette. My email is email@example.com. Thanks in advance!

Our WinSpool/400 Batch Report Server automatic report download software may be just what you need. It also includes a CD Burning utility. For more information and a demo CD contact me via email or check out our web site. Regards, Richard Schoen RJS Software Systems Inc.

Cliff, This is easily done with Operations Navigator. We usually transfer spool files belonging to the User's ID, but you can also do it by Printer Device. Obviously, if they have printed already, they will have to have the Save(*Yes) parameter set on the printer file. In Operations Navigator: Expand the appropriate System listed. Expand the Basic Operations option. Expand the Printers option. Select the printer you want to process. Select the appropriate spool file entries. To do all, click on the first, go to the bottom, shift-click on the last. Right-click on one of them and either Cut or Copy. Open Windows Explorer and Right-click the folder to deposit them into and select Paste. Bill

Cliff, here's an idea we used very successfully. We needed to transfer some 9000 text files from an AS/400 to an NT machine and weren't about to create 9000 CA transfer requests or do it manually. So, we set up a program to use command CPYTOPCD (there's a support line Technical Document available on the AS/400 website about it) to copy it into a subfolder in the QDLS document library system. Then, once all the files were copied in there, from the NT client we simply went to Network Neighborhood, found the AS/400 on the network, double clicked to open it, found the QDLS folder, found the subfolder in it, and dragged the subfolder to a folder on the NT client. Copied like a dream, fairly quickly and efficiently. The great thing is that the creation of the PF from the spool file AND the copy to the subfolder in QDLS document library system can all be automated in a CLP. Try it, you'll like it... The document is accessible at http://as400service.ibm.com/s_dir/slkbase.nsf/fd9885170ed46f758625680b00020373/1 2e85b1a6c09ed6 or, just go to the Software Knowledge base and search on CPYTOPCD. The document name is Data Transfer: CPYTOPCD and CPYFRMPCD translation Commands. Don Wozniak
