Unfortunately there's not. ISeries spool files are not objects. They are essentially records in a database file. The job attributes that are associated with them come from the job that created the spool file. When you send a copy of a spool file to another system, or even to the same system, these attributes are set by the job that is creating the copy, not the job that created the original spool file.
It is a pain .... I wish IBM would at least add some attributes to a spool file indicating the "original" job name associated with this file. Maybe a "Request for Design Change" is in order.
