I've built a database field that links to physical existing documents (Word, PDF, Tiff). The user can use the link to open the document, or press a print button to automatically print the document. Details found here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_22960923.html
The documents are read only. The client want s me to include a boiler plate on the footer of the document when it prints that says to the effect "document only good for today: Datestamp".
Is there any way to do this? Every workstation will have Word. So one idea is I could I use Word Automation to create a new document, import the existing document into the new word document, Print the document, and close down Word without saving the new document. When I create the new document, I figure it could be based from a template that is blank except for the footer message.
How feasible is this? Any other ideas?
