SP.ASSIGN (HS sends the file to the spooler, with HOLD and RETAIN attributes asserted. 
 It does not send files to the &HOLD& file.  You will find your files in the directory 
referred to by your UVSPOOL configuration parameter.  You can use the SPOOL -LIST 
command to see that they are held from printing.

You can use the SP.EDIT command to print them and manage them (for example "kill" 
(de-queue) them).

If you want to send output to &HOLD& the correct command to use is SETPTR with the 
sixth argument set to 3.  For example:  SETPTR 0,132,20000,0,0,3,BANNER MYFILE,BRIEF 
(this command directs the default print channel to a record called MYFILE in the 
&HOLD& file.

If you examine the SP.ASSIGN verb in the VOC file, and trace it back to source, you 
will find that SP.ASSIGN (HS actually ends up invoking the SETPTR command, but in mode 
1 (spooler), for example SETPTR 0,132,60,3,3,1,HOLD,RETAIN
