Locking Printers: Mass Processing -Rep ly

For the good of system, it is better to do this kind of operation in a
formal way rather through a back door. CATT script use formal GUI
interactive procedure to do a massive job in batch. Detail information of
CATT can be found in SAP document about CATT. here is our prototype document
for CATT. It might have minor error, but you should be able to work it
through.

> TSP03C-PADISABLED - This field is read upon creation of each spool request
