Prevent users from seeing other's spool files

Is there any way to prevent users from seeing the existence of each other's spool files on the system if they have access to the WRKSPLF command and/or 'Printer Output' in Operation Navigator and select *ALL? I know how to prevent one user from opening another user's spool file, but is there any way to prevent users from even seeing the existence of each other's spool files altogether?


If you are running OS/400 you can use a combination of DSPFFD and DSPFD to display file field descriptions and the file description.
