Word automation using vb.net 2010 and MS office 2010

I am working on word Templets in vb.net.
All i need to do is open the word document and replace some some text in word document and print it.

Here is the sample templet:


Applicant Name:<Name>
MRN:<MRN>
Effective Date:<Date>

Thank you for applying. We have reviewed the information you gave us. You are not eligible . This is because: .....some text..........

I need to replace <NAME>,<MRN> and <DATE> from the vb.net application and the print the word document.


Thanks for your help.

You want to print it to client printer or server printer? You will have to send the file to client so user can print it. To print on server, you would need to set the printer as its currently being set as XPS file printer.

My need is to print from clinet.


This is working fine on My local box, But as soon as i deployed into test server, the printer is not working. Then i log into test server and try to run from IIS.But on server there is no printer is set up.

Do i need to setup Printer on the server?

you need to return the document to the user and he will print it. you cannot print on a client computer from a server
