I am trying to deal with some print vending software. This software
allows for printing from a windows desktop to a windows print queue.
The job is sent with some unique information so users can identify and
pay for their job. That unique information is stored in the so-called
"Job description" field of the windows print job.

I am now told that this is also referred to as the "Document" in some
windows programming literature.

Reading the man page for smbspool it mentions "job title", could this
be the same thing? If so, what would be the best way to go about
modifying this feild?
