Post your question to a community of 468,103 developers. It's quick & easy.

Is is possible to get multiple files into a single print job??

I'm needing to get X number of files (.txt,.doc,.xls,.tiff,.pdf) into
a single Print Job.

The idea here is that a user searches for criteria in a system and
then builds a batch of documents that need to be printed together (so
that no one else on the network can slip in anything until this job
completes).

Any suggestions would be very very much appreciated. I'm at my wits
end on this one!!

Thanks!!!

That could be accomplished with a print redirector, whereas the batch of
print jobs would be printed either by their creating apps or by a special
app that could handle printing the various file formats [a more difficult
option]

I've seen a few and Adobe's Acrobat utilizes a similar technique of
"redirecting" print jobs to a PDF file...

Google works great for this kind of thing ;-)

Creating a helper app that can read the various file formats would take
FOREVER. Anyone know of any libraries for this?
