There doesn't appear to be a print switch in Word/Office 2003. Best thing I can see is to write a macro that will do the printing and then do winword /mprintmacroname filename.doc where the first parm is /m followed by the macro name with no spaces inbetween. I found this in Word by going in to help and searching for "command line switches" and selecting "Customizing how Word starts". There appears to be some 3rd party utils as well if you don't want to write the macro. Dunno if the utils would be free. John A.

I just want to print a bunch of documents from a batch file. No intervention, just print to the default printer. FWIW, WinXP Pro SP2, Word 2002 SP3. I also have installed WordViewer, which I tried in place of winword, to no effect. Easy, right?
