Topic: Printing a fdf file
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 124309

Hi you all,
I am new here.
I am trying to print a .fdf file I generated, using VB6 or VB.Net and Adobe Reader 6.0; could you suggest me how to do that?
for instance, if I want to show it I can call a shell command as
Dim X As Long
X = Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\winword.exe c:\temp\MyFile.doc", _
I wish to know how to launch the print process of a .fdf file, say c:\temp\MyFile.fdf, as if I did it right-clicking on the .fdf file and selecting Print from the resources of computer.
I tried to find classes by means of which I could control Print process, but found nothing (it is easy from Adobe Acrobat 5.0 full).
Can you help me?
thank you all
