    Set iWBook = iExcel.Application.Workbooks.Open(TempDBPath)
    Set iWSheet = iWBook.Worksheets("123")

Hi kirtirani,

or use the shellexecute function
http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q238245&

this line

StartDoc = ShellExecute(hwnd, "open", "C:\My Documents\Book1.xls", "", _
      "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)

change the open to print like

StartDoc = ShellExecute(hwnd, "print", "C:\My Documents\Book1.xls", "", _
      "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)

reason to use shell to print is that if you close and quit excel while printing you'll get an error because you're trying to throw an object while it's still busy
