Im wondering if theres a generic windows automation controller that you can send a file name and it will print the document? In Navision we can HYPERLINK() and the document will open in the default program, but is there a generic automation controller that i could call like: printcontroller(‘c:\test.txt’); printcontroller(‘c:\test.jpg’); printcontroller(‘c:\test.doc’); It would determine the txt file association and open/print the document, jpg similarly, doc would probably open word and print. I guess this would be like dragging and dropping any file onto a printer icon. I have extension etc in my table but Id rather not have to check the file name/extension and write code to use different controllers based on document type. Any ideas?
