I have a question maybe someone has come across before.  I have a print button on a form in access that I need to print all of the PDF files in a certain folder.  When you click on the button it should automatically print all the PDF's in that folder to the default printer.  Anyone know how to do this?

Try this code, but you must have adobe reader.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
On Error GoTo Command1_Click_Error
Dim iNoOfFiles As Integer
Dim iCounter As Integer
Dim sFilePath As String

sFilePath = "C:\temp" ' Replace with your folder

With Application.FileSearch
    .NewSearch
    .LookIn = sFilePath
    .FileName = "*.pdf" 'replace with "*.txt" to find txt files
                        ', "*.doc" for documents .. etc Or with "*.*" for all files type
    .SearchSubFolders = False
    .Execute
    iNoOfFiles = .FoundFiles.Count
    For iCounter = 1 To iNoOfFiles
        Debug.Print .FoundFiles(iCounter)
        ' Print The file with Adobe Reader 9
        ' if you have another version or your adobe reader instaled
        ' in another path change the following path to your "acrord32.exe" file
        ' Replace "vbHide" with vbMinimizedFocus, vbMaximizedFocus OR vbNormalFocus if you
        ' wont Adobe appear during printing
        Shell """C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\acrord32.exe"" /h /p """ + .FoundFiles(iCounter) + """", vbHide
