Changing a default printer

One user writes, "I'd like to change the printer a usrprf has assigned. Can you tell me the best way to go about that?" Printing an output expert Chip Milosch offer some advice.

I'd like to change the printer a usrprf has assigned. Can you tell me the best way to go about that?
Do you want to permanently change a usrprf's default printer (outq), or just during a particular job (session)?

To make a permanent change, you would use the CHGUSRPRF command with the following syntax:

CHGUSRPRF OUTQ( )

If this change is just during a particular job, then could issue a change job command:

CHGJOB OUTQ( )
