Can multiple output queues feed one writer?

Is there a way to assign multiple output queues to one writer?

My understanding of your question is that you want multiple output queues to feed one active writer. There is no native way to do this that I'm aware of, but there is a way to accomplish your goal with a tiny bit of programming. On your various output queues, you can specify a data queue. Entries will be written to the data queue when a spool file on that output queue hits a ready status. You can then have a batch program that monitors the data queue and transfers your spool files to the output queue with the active writer.
