Since the user logical tables get processed before system tables, you could
redefine MULTINET_SPOOL in the user's login. This would take all of the
queues that Multinet handles. I think this would work.

# Subject: print to file?
#
#
# Is there any way to persuade a Multinet print queue
# to send print jobs to a file in a user's directory?
#
# For example, can the spooling directory be redefined
# on a per-queue basis?
#
# I don't see any mention of a "print to file" option in the
# Multinet documentation. Have I overlooked it?
#
# Apparently it may be a future option in DCPS, but our need is now :-)
#
# Alternatively, does anyone know of another print symbiont that
# can do this?
#
# There seems to be a Windows based solution (sending print jobs to
# queues on individuals' PCs) but I'd like to avoid that if possible.
#
# Our business office is trying to reduce the amount of paper records
# they have to keep. The mainframe application that they're running
# sends print jobs to lpr/lpd queues that are served by our
# VMS/Multinet system.
#
# They're currently testing scanning the printer output and using OCR,
# That's what they'll have to do for existing documents, but it'd
# be nice to avoid that effort for future documents.
#
# I think that one queue per user, each writing a specific
# directory would be an acceptable solution.
#
# Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
