I have an Access97 application which omang other things prints Word97documents based on database member selection information. I am using DDE and if the Documents are short 4-5 pages I don't have a problem. If the Documents are longer I get "Word is Currently printing...." messages. What is the best way to halt the DDE request to open and print until the current document has been spooled.
I know you can set background printing options to hide the message but does this actually halt the DDE request until the job is spooled? If no, what is my best alternative?
