The Change  Spooled File  Copies command  provides a  simple change  of

have  full  CHGSPLFA  function to  be  able  to  change the  number  of

A typical command would be:

             CHGSPLFCPY  SPLF(xxx) COPIES(3)

The command can be used in conjunction with the WRKALLSPLF command.

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
