3/28/08 How to retrieve spool files from another System i

First, ensure communications are set correctly by utilizing the SNDNETMSG (Send Network Message) command to send a test message prior to transferring the spooled file.
1. On a command line, type: WRKOUTQ LIBNAME/OUTQ
2. Type "1" next to the spooled file you wish to send and press Enter.
3. Type the User ID. This will be the user you wish to send the spooled file to.
4. Type the name of the machine that the spooled file will be sent to.
5. Type *ALLDATA for the Data Format parameter so this will include all resources associated if needed and press Enter.

Once the spool file transfers, it will be located in the default OutQ for user profile to which you sent it.
