Change OUTQ'S authorities

I've tried everything I can think of.

EXAMPLE: A user is in CHGSPLFA and changes one of his/her spooled files to OUTQ(whatever)instead of the OUTQ the user is supposed to send it to.

I know a user can be restricted from viewing files in an OUTQ.

My question for you Carol is this.... is there a way to have the 400 stop a user from sending spooled files to certain OUTQ's?

We cannot have sensitive data being sent to the wrong OUTQ's.

Have you tried changing the authorities on the OUTQ'S themselves? Assuming that the users don't have *SPLCTL special authority, the user will have to have *READ authority to the target output queue. You need *READ authority for most spooled file operation so once you remove it, they probably won't be able to do much of anything with that OUTQ. If the user has *SPLCTL, you don't have much hope of gaining control over this problem.
