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?

Environment

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

Cause

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

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
