all output to printer from that moment to  e.g. pdf document test.pdf
on printer.enddoc command the pdf gets saved

But:
I need by using shell commands or any other better way
to print 1 excel sheet, 1  word document, 1  other pdf document
They all has to go  to one pdf output , how to do this ?

I've done this in the past and it's quite easy.  Just go to this site and download PDFTK (free)

http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/

Now all you have to do is print each of your documents to a temp PDF folder and use the toolkit to combine them into one PDF document.

The PDF toolkit can be used inside VB6 via the ShellExecute API
