    I am not entirely sure if this in the right part of the forum, but please see if you can help me.

    The request that has been given to me to try solve, which I am scratching my head over is whether it is possible to use a website as an interface to allow a user to select a MS Word Documents, and to then send them to a printer to print off in one go. Can someone explain to me whether this possible, my line of thought is to use a gridview for the requests and to use checkboxes to make the selection for the user? My question is whether there is how I can send to a printer a lot of MS Word documents, and to print them in one hit!

    Can someone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    As for how to print the selected document, i think you can open the word document and get the stream and print it programatically. For more details on how to print in C#, you can refer the following step by step tutorial.


    From your description, it seems that it should be a print queue management issue.  In order to achieve that, I suggest that you can refer the Printer Monitor Component which is a .NET component which allows you to monitor and administer the print queue from VB.Net, C# or any of the .NET environments.
