Printing amount of copies of Word Document from Delphi-app ...

Hi experts,

I want to print a word-document from my delphi-application (preferable is that Word itself won't open).
I want to be able to dynamically determine the documentname and number of copies to print.
Please feed me with some code if possible.
Thanks in advance,

The Mayor.

Take a look at the TWordApplication component on the servers tab of the component palette

  WordApplication1.Connect;
  WordDocument1.PrintOut();  //here is where you decribe all your parameters example: copies
  WordApplication1.Disconnect;
  WordApplication1.Quit;

Hi shaneholmes,

It works !!!!
I looked at the URL you gave in your second comment. Ther I found the complete anwser to my question.

This is the solution I used :

var
 DocFile, PrnFile,
 Background, Append, Range, OutputFileName,
 From, To_, Item, Copies, Pages, PageType,
 PrintToFile, Collate, FileName,
 ActivePrinterMacGX, ManualDuplexPrint: OleVariant;
 Doc, Word : OleVariant;
begin
 DocFile := 'C:\test.doc';
 PrnFile := 'c:\test.prn';
 Word := CreateOleObject('Word.Document.6');
 Background := False;
 Append := EmptyParam;
 Range := 0;
 OutputFileName := PrnFile;
 From := '';
 To_ := '';
 Item := 0;
 Copies := 1;
 Pages := '1';
 PageType := 0;
 PrintToFile := True;
 FileName := DocFile;
 Collate := EmptyParam;
 ActivePrinterMacGX := EmptyParam;
 ManualDuplexPrint := EmptyParam;
 word.Application.Visible := false;

 Word.Application.PrintOut(Background,
                        Append,
                        Range,
                        OutputFileName,
                        From,
                        To_,
                        Item,
                        Copies,
                        Pages,
                        PageType,
                        PrintToFile,
                        Collate,
                        FileName,
                        ActivePrinterMacGX);


Thanks a lot for the fast response !

Best regards,

The Mayor.
