Problem:

Is it possible to change the order of the Spool Output in Enterprise Server ?
Currently the output is in JOBN number order.

Solution:

The ES_JES_SPOOL_ORDER environment variable can be used to control either ascending or descending JES output queue order, but is there any way to change the default of which column the ascending / descending applies.

ES_JES_SPOOL_ORDER
The order in which the spool list is displayed when ESMAC is first opened. 
The default spool order is ascending.
Setting this environment variable to 1 changes it to descending order - any other value displays it in ascending order.

From version 5.0 of our products, extra sorting capabilities have been added. 

The change involves the introduction of a new environment variable :  ES_JES_SORT_SPOOL_BY.  This is used to decide which column is used to sort the spool records in casrdo41.   

Accepted values are JOBNAME/SUBDATE/JOBUSER.

If anything else is specified, then the spool records are sorted based on the JOBNUMBER (JOBID)

This gives much improved flexibility around the sorting and display of spool files.
