Problem printing multiple documents (office 2000)
When I try to print multiple documents by pointing to a folder that contain
word docs, select all and print I sometimes get an error "Ambiguous name".
Sometimes I don't get this error but only some of the documents are printed.
Operating system = windows 2000
Version of word = word 2000

Re: Problem printing multiple documents (office 2000)
Are they all .DOC files?
If you examine your print command in Windows Explorer's Tools>Folder Options...>File Types tab for DOC (Advanced...>print>Edit...), does it look like this?
Application used to perform action: "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeWINWORD.EXE" /x /n
Use DDE: checked
DDE Message: [REM _DDE_Minimize][FileOpen("%1")][t=IsDocumentDirty()][FilePrint 0][SetDocumentDirty t][DocClose]
DDE Application Not Running: [FileOpen("%1")][FilePrint 0][FileExit 2]
As far as I know, those are the default settings, which are used when you print from Windows Explorer/My Computer. Since I never print that way, I haven't tested whether the error would occur with these settings.
