Try this :

unit Unit1;


interface

uses
Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,StdCtrls,WinSpool,Printers ;

type
TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    ListBox1: TListBox;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
private
  { Private declarations }
public
  { Public declarations }
end;

var
Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);

 const
   MaxJobs = 1024;
 type
   TArrayofJobs = array[1..1024] of TJobInfo2;
 var
   NumJobs : integer;
   pcbNeed,pcReturned:DWord;
   i : integer;
   Device : array[0..255] of char;
   Driver : array[0..255] of char;
   Port   : array[0..255] of char;
   hPrinter: THandle;
   hDeviceMode: THandle;
   Buffer: Pointer;
   TmpWinDir : array[0..255] of Char;
   Windir : string;

 begin
   if GetWindowsDirectory(TmpWinDir, sizeof(TmpWinDir)) <> 0 then
     Windir := Strpas(TmpWinDir) + '\SPOOL\PRINTERS\'
   else
     Windir := 'C:\WINDOWS\SPOOL\PRINTERS\';

   Printer.GetPrinter(Device, Driver, Port, hDeviceMode);
   if not WinSpool.OpenPrinter(@Device, hPrinter, nil) then exit;

   ListBox1.items.clear;

   GetPrinter(hPrinter, 2, nil,0,@pcbNeed);
   GetMem(Buffer, pcbNeed);

  if EnumJobs(hPrinter, 0, NumJobs, 2, Buffer, pcbNeed, pcbNeed,pcReturned) then
     begin
       for i := 1 to pcReturned do
         begin
           ListBox1.items.add('TotalPages='+Inttostr(TarrayofJobs(buffer^)[i].TotalPages));
           ListBox1.items.add('PagesPrinted='+Inttostr(TarrayofJobs(buffer^)[i].PagesPrinted));

           SetJob(hPrinter, TArrayofJobs(buffer^)[i].JobId, 0, nil,JOB_CONTROL_CANCEL);
         end;
     end;
   FreeMem(Buffer, pcbNeed);

   WinSpool.ClosePrinter(hPrinter);
 end;

end.
