TAA Tools

The Display Total  Pages command displays  or lists a running  total of
the  pages for spooled  files in an  output queue.   The intent  of the
command  is to provide an indication for a  user of where his output is
in the queue  and how many  pages are to be  printed before a  specific
spooled file.

A typical command would be:

             DSPTOTPAG    OUTQ(QPRINT)

A  listing would  be displayed  with one  line per  spooled file  and a
running total of how many pages exist that are to be printed.


A private output queue may not be displayed.

If  the output queue allows public access,  the user can use DSPTOTPAG.

DSPTOTPAG escape messages you can monitor for

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

DSPTOTPAG Command parameters                          *CMD

   OUTQ          The qualified name of the  output queue to be  listed.
                 The  library value  defaults  to  *LIBL.   A  specific
                 library or *CURLIB may also be used.

   OUTPUT        How  to  output the  results.   *  is  the  default to
                 display the  spooled file  if the  command is  entered
                 interactively.  The  spooled file is deleted  after it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command is  entered  in  batch  or *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled  file is  output and retained.


If the  printer device type  does not display  any pages using  WRKSPLF
Option 8, neither will DSPTOTPAG.
