it should show up by default. If it doesn't then its been disabled.

Open the printers folder
click file and choose server properties
click advanced and make sure the two show informational events options are checked.

Post back if that doesn't work and we can look at other options.

Thanks for your quick reply. It doesn't look like I've got the option to tick that box. Attached print screen for you.

Yes sorry about the size of the pic, 50kb limit it's hard to get it down! I ticked "log spooler information events" and it seems to be working. Thanks heaps.
