I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ShellExecute target is outside the VFP scope...
Could you try Word automation instead of the ShellExecute?
ow = CREATEOBJECT('Word.application')
ow.Visible = .t.
ow.Documents.Open('c:\what.doc')
ow.ActiveDocument.PrintOut()
ow.quit

Open in new window

Also you may try to play with the  ow.DisplayAlerts setting. Allowed values are 0, -1, -2, the 0 value should suppress alerts.
