Hi Experts.. I hope I'm in the right place...:)
I was to restore some spool files resides in an outq in a tape to my library. I've done it with RSTOBJ command but the result is only the outq created or copied into my library, not the spool files in it.
My question is, how do I restore the outq along with the spool files in it into my library?
Thanks.

Hi
there is nothing in base AS/400 to save and restore spool files. There are third party products out there (some free)

There is a savoutq command at this link

I am not too sure abot the restore

There is a
Save restore spool file command on the Iseries network but you need to be a professional member to get to it (It is well worth while joining and costs about $200 per year)

spool and file and restore

Hi,

When you save an OUTQ in AS/400, you don't actually save the spooled files contained in the OUTQ. So, if you only have the backup of the OUTQ, we can conclude that you don't have any backup of your spooled files.
Going forward, if you'd like to save your spooled files, you can make use of CPYFRMOUTQ free, unsupported tools from IBM that you have to compile yourself (check member AAAREADME in file QATTINFO in library QUSRTOOL, and search for CPYFRMOUTQ).

Actually that's not exact answer but the nearest. My friend show me the right way. It is to restore the outq into a specified library, edit some library, override db file, get the restored outq attributes and the copy the spool file to my library. Anyway, thanks for the reply.
