List all users cron jobs

Is there a way to see All USERS cron jobs?  I know you can use crontab -l to see a list for a single user, but what I want to do is see all of the cron jobs for ALL users in one big list.

I'm needing to replicate "most" of server A to server B, but I want to pick and choose my cron jobs. But over the years they were set up under various different users and I don't recall who they all were.

Thanks.

you could try cat /var/spool/cron/*
if it's too long use less
less /var/spool/cron/*

if you want to document the crontab jobs then you can run

cd /var/spool/cron
for user in `ls`
do
    echo ---------------------- $user ---------------------------
    cat $user
done >> /tmp/cronjobs

That's excellent.  Is there a way to get that to be saved to a file that I could then download to my workstation and print out.

I think output should go to /tmp/cronjobs file which is text file that you can download
