    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

    Thanks,

    Justin

    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?

    Action: Print
    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]
    Application: WinWord
    DDE Application Not Running: [FileOpen("%1")][FilePrint 0][FileExit 2]
    Topic: System

    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.
