Restart printers with graphical, restricted access

Give other personnel restricted access to the printers and eliminate user calls directly to the programmers or administrator.

To eliminate user calls directly to programmers/administrator, this example can be used to give other personnel (e.g. helpdesk) access to the printers. A basic user profile with no special authority needs to be created. In the user profile, the initial program can be linked to a CL (see below) to call the wrkwtr function. Now, all that's needed is a desktop link with graphical access to the AS/400.
