The Change Spooled File  Form Type command provides a  simple change of
the form  type for a  spooled file.   A prompt override  program exists
so  the user can see  the current value before  making the change.  The
intent of  the command  is to allow  a user  who should  not have  full
CHGSPLFA function to be able to change the form type.

A typical command would be:

             CHGSPLFORM  SPLF(xxx) FORMTYPE(xxx)

The default for the JOB and SPLNBR parameter would be used.

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

CHGSPLFORM escape messages you can monitor for

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

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   FILE          The spooled file to display the attributes for.

   JOB           The  qualified job name  of the  job with  the spooled
                 file.  The default is * meaning the current job.

   SPLNBR        The  file number of  the spooled file.   This defaults
                 to  *ONLY.    *LAST  or  a  specific  number  may   be

   FORMTYPE      The form  type to to be  used.  The default  is *SAME.
                 Any  value may be entered  including *STD, lower case,
                 an expression (such as 'abc d e'), or blanks.
