I am developing an application that monitors a shared network printer on a workstation from the server. How do I receive notification when a print job is sent to the printer from any other computer on the network? I need sample code that shows how I can get the name of the computer from which the job was sent, the number of pages printed and some other details

I tried the sample. It could not log any printer jobs on Windows 2000 Server. I did not change anything in the application's source. Does it work in Win2K?

I would have no idea.  Your best bet would be to contact the author of that code.  Karen is always very kind to respond to questions regarding her code.
