OLE printing

Hello, ppl!
The problem is that I just can't print from OLEContainer object. :( Object contains a document, transferred from MSWord. I've GOT to print it's contains, but have no ideas about how to... There are no usable features for OLEContainer that could help me. Please assist!

 Thanks in progress,

I have the same problem using the MS webbrowser control as an OLE2 object. The solution is to pass it an OLECOMMANDTARGET procedure with some parameters about printing (see my question on MSWEbBrowser and Delphi printing). The problem is that this was not implemented yet in Delphi 2 (perhaps Delphi 3). Visual C++ 4.2 (I believe this is the first one with this implemented) has it. So no go here. Try spying on MS Word and seeing what messages it send around, perhaps one of those would suffice. Another solution would be to send some hotkey word designated for printing (like ^P). I hope this helps...
