Scheduling prints to the network printer
Posted on 2004-08-25
I want to schedule printing of a certain excel document at a certain time of the week. There is an added complexity here. The excel document name is not the same every week.
The folder in which the excel document resides is always the same. lets say, W:\Documents\Template\*.
The excel document is having the name format, "Weekly Status Report - <<date>>". As you can see, the date in the name of the document keeps changing once every week. So, for scheduling, I want to go to the folder and select the document having the first name as "Weekly Status Report" and automate the printing at 7AM on every Wednesday. (There are other excel documents in the folder, but none starts with "weekly status report" first name, so we are fine to say that there will always be only one document with "Weekly Status report" first name in the folder).
I have windows 2000 and the network printer is connected to lpt1: and is the default printer too.
Can anyone provide solution for this.
