Hi,

In VB.NET, how can I send jobs such as documents to the printer spooler.  I guess what I'm trying to do is... I have merged the letters and data file and want to send all of them to the spooler and hang there until somebody physically change the form type  print them.

Thanks in advance.

Dim oWord as Word.Application
Dim oDoc as Word.Document

oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application)
oWord.Visible = False.

oDoc = oWord.Documents.Open("C:\Report.doc")
