sending documents to a printer
Posted on 2011-02-17
what I'm trying to do is have a user send several documents (pdf, excel, word,text) to their default printer without having to open the documents. I'm using coldfusion 8. Basically, a user has a report with several attachments and I want the attachments printed out as an appendix to the original document. I thought I could display embed the attachments with the actual report and then print out the whole thing but then I realized that this was not an easy task so I'm thinking that they could click on a button that says "print attachments" and the documents would be sent to a printer. Do you have an idea of how I can accomplish this? The actual or main document is just html with an "export to word " option.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
