WINWORD.EXE not closing after mWordObject.ActiveDocument.PrintOut()

I have a requirement where i need to print set of documents and this is working fine. But all the WINWORD.EXE's for each document are staying in Task Manager and i have to manually end all the processes.

Please let me know how to overcome this. If i do this

                mWordObject.Application.Quit()
                mWordObject = Nothing

It closes the WINWORD.EXE but it closes even before it prints. I want to know if there is a method which can find when the printing is done and then closes the WINDWORD.EXE files.

Any help/suggestions would be really helpful.

Thanks

Hi smaram1,

Try the following:

mWordObject.ActiveDocument.PrintOut()
Do While objWord.BackgroundPrintingStatus > 0
Loop

mWordObject.Application.Quit()
mWordObject = Nothing

Let me know if that doesn't work.

Cheers!

To verify my solution, here's a sample hello world scenario - where a new document is created, hello world written to the new doc, it is printed, and after the printing is complete, the doc is closed.

        Dim oWord As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application
        Dim oDoc As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
        Dim oPara1 As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Paragraph

        oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
        oWord.Visible = True
        oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add

        'Insert a paragraph at the beginning of the document.
        oPara1 = oDoc.Content.Paragraphs.Add
        oPara1.Range.Text = "Hello World!"
        oPara1.Range.Font.Bold = True

        oWord.ActiveDocument.PrintOut()

        'Wait for printing to complete.
        Do While oWord.BackgroundPrintingStatus > 0
        Loop

        oDoc.Close(False) 'Close without saving

        oWord.Application.Quit()
        oWord = Nothing
