Hi experts,

       I am looking for a way to automate the printing of three of my Reports Daily.  Basically, I have three different reports that each require a Start Date and an End Date Parameter.  These Reports need to be printed once a day.  I would like a way to send these three reports to a printer without user interaction.  For example, at 8:00 AM Everyday the reports would print to a local printer.  I want manually set the Start and End Date Parameters to something like End Date = now() and Start Date = Now() - 1 day.  I am using Reporting Services 2000.  I also have Visual Studio 2003 and I am familiar with the Report Viewer control.  I found a way using the Report Viewer control to auto export one report but not print.  I also briefely looked into using a script and running it from the command line to do the job.  Any way will work for me as long as it gets the job done.

There's a sample delivery extension in the Reporting Server installation that will allow you to do this. It's unsupported by MS but it sould work. Once installed you setup a subscription to print to the printer and set it to auto print.

Alternatively you could do a subscription that exports the report to a file and then use a batch print utility to pick up the file and print it.  www.planetpdf.com has  some scripts that might help on this.
