Notes Domino web page to MS Word print

Ultimately, I am trying to launch a 'business letter quality' print out of a Lotus Notes Domino Web page.  

Looking for code and instruction to translate a Lotus Notes Domino (R5) web page to a MS Word (v9) template.  I'm new to Lotusscript so if information along this line is provided, the more specific the better.  Any extra assistance with generateing word template would be helpful too.

My first thought is to launch a MS Word template and print from there.  But if there's another, easier approach I'd be open to hearing about it as a secondary choice.

High quality printing? You're in for lots of trouble, for it is impossible with only Notes, hard to accomplish using Notes and Word, and a lot easier with tools that cost money. Who/what is it for? The browser user on the Internet? Someone on the Intranet? To print a quotation?

My first impression: buy some tool (NotesToPaper or equiv.), generate a PDF document on the server and send that to the user.

The form is used via the Intranet.  The end document is something we need to mail out to customers.  I was also trying to think through using domino to generate a word doc as an attachment - not sure if doing this would be much different than launching word and printing.

We do utilize Adobe.  Could that be used to generate a pdf and print from there?

I don't know if Adobe Acrobat(?) has a COM interface, Word has one anyway. The generation of the document can only be done on the server, and your server O/S must be Win* in order to be running a copy of Word. Yes, technically speaking, it's doable. I'd prefer one of the tools, however, the development will be so much smoother.

If you intend to use Word with the COM-interface: make a standard Word-template that can be opened for a new document, fill that document using bookmarks at the right places, save it and send it out.

Hemantha: NotesToPaper (see my first post) has got nothing to do with Adobe, other than that it can produce PDF output-files.

It's very well possible that the Midas set (or other tools) might accomplish the same, but I only know NTP from several projects I did with it. So if anyone knows about comparable tools, please add them here.

Adobe Acrobat (full version) does have a COM interface, and as mentioned, there is NotesToPaper.  Midas will do Word exports, but more likely, you'd want to create a Word template that has fields/placeholders set up, and use the Word COM interface to replace the Word field values or placeholders.  Personally, I'd rather mail out a simple but clean HTML file.
