Print any file type from VBA

Last Modified: 2012-08-10
I have a listbox with all the files in a directory.  These are mixed files types, workd, pdf, excel, etc.  Is there a way, when the user highlights the file name in the listbox and then hits print, to simply print the file without having to open it or use any type of object?  This is from an Access 2003 form in VBA.  The file types can also be 2003, 2007 or 2010 files.
