Printing Purchase Orders in SRM (spool issues, etc.)

Hi SRM Gurus,

Could anyone tell me exactly how the printing of PO's works in SRM? What is the step by step description from PO approval to getting the prinout?

From my understanding, as long as you've configured everything stated from SAP Note 564826 (assign printer LOCL to pgrp, schdule background job RSPPFPROCESS, etc) when you go to transaction "Issue Purchase Orders" and click on the print button...the output will be processed by the background job that we scheduled.

The problem is that, in the spool request, there are two (2) spool numbers created which I don't understand. One is described as OTF_SPOOL and has the title COMP LOCL SAPMSSY1. This always has the status "Completed" and highlighted as green.

The other is an unprocessed spool request described as SCRIPT LOCL SAPMSSY1 I dont know what the difference of these two are, but either way...there was no actual printout.

Is there something I need to know about the background job? It seems the answer is there...
