Server side printing of HTML generated by ASP at scheduled time
Posted on 2004-08-10
Hello. System is WIn2000 server, IIS 5, classic ASP, VBScript 5.6
I am trying to set up a system that will schedule an ASP script to run at a certain time of the day on the server and print of a report.
The reports is done, and the ASP script can be told to save a copy of the report to the servers file system, should I need to use VB or WSH to print it.
The report is HTML, so I want to parse the report preferably using IEXPLORE.exe. I don't want any user interaction or dialogue boxes.
I can use the AT command to schedule something.
SO I am looking at possibly using a WSH script to run the ASP file to generate a HTML file, and then use IEXPLORE.exe to parse this file and send it to a printer.
Is this possible ? I have got various constituent parts to this working but tieing it together is proving difficult.
Any help appreciated.
