Printing Multiple Word Docs from OL or Explorer
Posted on 2001-06-06
Word2K (1a); Win2K Server and Workstation:
A user pointed out that when selecting multiple Word attachments from Outlook and using right-click print, a few would print fine and then he would get a file not found error.
In testing on my machine I was able to duplicate the issue. With Task Manager open and viewing processes I have identified the issue -- a separate instance of Winword is being created for each Word attachment. Digging a little deeper, I discovered the same happens from Windows Explorer. If "Open" is selected from the smart menu, then all works as one would expect -- one instance of Word, with multiple documents open.
I've checked TechNet and can't find anything related. Has anyone heard of this and know a fix for it?
I'm sorry :o(... I would offer more points, but I'm new here.
