Here are my changes, please let me know what would cause 2 spool files to generate.
This article discusses overriding printer files. In some cases, you can specify attributes in overrides that are not part of the original file definition. Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued.
You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created. If a CL zs400 overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for the high-level language program.
I have tried this as a ass400 call in case that was an issue. Here is my code and the job log: Examples of items where overrides can be used are: Overriding a file is different from changing a file in that an override does not permanently change the attributes of a file.

Printer file overrides
The job had ending code 0. Overrides are particularly useful for making minor changes to the way a program functions or for selecting the data on which it operates, without having to recompile the program. However, if a high-level language program calls a CL program that overrides a file, the override is deleted automatically when control returns to the high-level language program. For example, if you as4000 the number of copies specified in a printer file by requesting six copies instead of two, the file description for the printer file still specifies two copies, but six copies are printed.
