This generates a Spool File LISTxxxxxx for each execution which remains in status END and that can't be Displayed. 

For example, LIST651713:


Why the file is not deleted upon execution?

Cause

We suspect the issue is due to a particular System Setting that prevents DLTSPLF to properly delete the file.

Environment

OS: AS400
Release : 6.x
Component : DOLLAR UNIVERSE

Resolution

The issue is not related to Dollar Universe but to the AS400 system configuration.
In case the issue occurs, please contact your AS400 System Administrators to log a case with IBM.

Workaround: manually delete the LIST* Spool files
