Press help on the CPYSPLF command and read the layout for *PRTCTL. Most options can be easily reproduced with an RPG pgm or a simple CPYF command.

Next time ask them to CPYSPLF ... CTLCHAR(*FCFC). You then do

OVRPRTF QPRINT ... CTLCHAR(*FCFC)
CPYF file QPRINT
DLTOVR QPRINT

Unfortunately there is no OVRPRTF CTLCHAR(*PRTCTL).

Any non-externally described printer file will work. If you do this regularly, you might want to CRTPRTF with appropriate PAGESIZE() and so forth, to save yourself typing (and remembering) all of the keywords from your OVRPRTF.
