Q

Delete bulk spool files

We currently have 250 output queues that contain spool files. It is required that we keep spool files up to one...

month old. Is it anyway possible to specify a date range when deleting spool files?

eg.dltsplf qsecofr fromdate(010602) todate(140702)


There are some third-party utilities available that will accomplish this task for you. The AS/400 Web site has a utility called CLNOUTQ. You can find and download it from their Web site. It works well. I use it myself. However, if you are good at working with APIs, you can investigate which APIs you could call in a program to get the date of the spool file.
