of course you COULD use WRKOBJLCK with *PRINT output, then cpysplf to a physical file and then read the physical file. You'd have to parse the data to look for the jobs, but it's all there. it's a bit of a hack, but it would work.

You are correct in that WRKOBJLCK does not allow you to create a *outfile, but it will allow you to create a spool file *print which you can then do a CPYSPLF to a file and then write a program to read that file and then end the necessary jobs.  You will have to write the input specs for the file created since it is not a database file with predefined fields.  I realize this is a round about way of making it work, but it does work.
