I'm trying to get a specific PDF to open and print. Using the code below I am able to get the desired PDFs to open but not print. I've looked at many examples and they appear to be using objects not availible in my library. I've added the following libraries:
Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Type Library
Acrobat Access 3.0 Type Library
Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Browser Control Type Library 1.0
AcroIEHelper 1.0 Tpye Library

Any help with the code or any additional libraries that I'm not using will be greatly appreciated.

Private Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = &H1&
Private Declare Function ShellExecuteA Lib "shell32" ( _
  ByVal hwnd As Long, _
  ByVal lpszOp As String, _
  ByVal lpszFile As String, _
  ByVal lpszParams As String, _
  ByVal LpszDir As String, _
  ByVal FsShowCmd As Long) As Long
Public Sub OpenPDF(ByVal szPDFLocation As String)
  Dim Success As Long
  ' If the function succeeds, it returns a value greater than 32.
  Success = ShellExecuteA(0, "open", szPDFLocation, vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOWNORMAL)
  If Success > 32 Then
    Debug.Print "Success"
    ' For a list of error codes.
    Debug.Print "Error= " & Success
  End If
