    Printing after hours (Business Ultimate)

    I know I've seen an option somewhere for this, but I'll be a monkey's uncle if I can find it without your assistance.

    How can I get a PDF document to print to a specific printer, after normal business hours, without having to personally initiate the task (remotely or onsite) ?

    I've got a 200+ page document that I need printed, and I don't really want to tie up the printer (or network) on my co-workers.

    Thanks!

    RoboCopy the *.pdf to PRN? (<post:=714,721>post 714,721</post:>)
    However, you can also use /RH to schedule a job to start at a later time. For example, you could start Robocopy in a command window with /RH:1900-1901 just before you leave work to go home, and the job would start copying at 7pm, and run overnight.

    Thank-you Peter and Chris. I'll investigate those solutions shortly.

    What you want is the Print Spooler. I don't have a link to give you, but a search should turn up a ton of information.
