I've been trying to figure out if this is possible or not, and after searching around haven't gotten anywhere.

I have a Adobe Illustrator CS file that I use to print tickets for a local charity for their raffles. It uses a XML file to store the ticket numbers, and that is loaded into Illustrator through the variables panel. When I goto print the tickets, I have created a basic batch action that just tells it to print each dataset, however it asks me to hit 'Print' on each and every single page it prints. Is there any way to not have it do this and just print them all so I don't have to sit by the computer while it prints? (The average print is usually 250-500 pages so it takes a long time).

Not that I know of, but there are workarounds. For example, have the action save each page as a PDF, then drop the whole batch of PDF files into your print queue.

Yeah, that one I had thought about also, and after talking to a few other people, seems about the best idea. Thanks.
