Well, sorry but QSPOOL goes Nuts once you hit the 100,000 mark.
Been there, dunnit.
I would highly recommend to reset (clear) the spool or archive it. You can achieve this by renaming every *.SP1 and renaming the SPxJOBS file to a new spool name.
I just tested this on a Windows 7 Pro workstation on a Windows Server 2003.
Suppose your old spooler is 'SP1' and the new "Archived" Spooler is 'SPA'
From Comet RENAME SP1JOBS to SPAJOBS
From DOS (Command Prompt)
go to the spool directory
RENAME *.SP1 *.SPA
Et voilą ! You got an Archive and you can now start your SP1 as a new spooler.... Run QSPOOL to re-initialize it.
Have Fun !
