Windows forms  visual studio 2008  I  am using the following code to print a form  
this is working fine but I have to issues

1-I need to insert the Date  on the file name, with this code it does but it only puts the year
example  "2013 Enh A Shift"   I need to be the   Month/Date/Year + File name

2-  I need to hardcode the path to the file to be save right now by default comes on the document folders. I want a Network Share path

 Dim a As Date
        a = Format(Today, "short date")
        Dim pf As New PrintForm
        pf.Form = Me
        pf.Form.BackColor = Color.White
        pf.Form.Controls.Remove(bntprint)
        pf.Form.Controls.Remove(bntcryovac)
        pf.PrinterSettings.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = True
        pf.PrintAction = Printing.PrintAction.PrintToPrinter
        pf.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = "Adobe PDF"
        pf.DocumentName = a & " " & "ENH A SHIFT"
        pf.Print()
        pf.Form.Controls.Add(bntprint)
        pf.Form.Controls.Add(bntcryovac)

Your date won't be in the correct format, the slash '/' will be taken as a breakdown of folders.

Instead you could use this:
a = Today.ToString("MM-dd-yyy")

That will give you the month, day and year.   The rest of the code would remain as it is.

I don't use the PowerPacks so can't help with setting the default path for PrintForm.

You are printing to a printer so why is file path involved? Are you printing to PDF? If yes then the save as dialog as shown by pdf print driver so you may not be able to  control that.
