    anycode to obtain when file has completed spooling (Word97/XP)

    Hi there

    Does anyone have any code which when a file is sent to the printer >when this file is completed spooling.
    As I'm writing code that once the file has completed spooling thats when I need to access the file.
    The probelm is when I have extremely large documents 80-200-400 pages (& of course the pc's processing speed) & therefore the spooling process takes longer.
    Once this file has completed spooling then I want to be able to access the file to edit.

    any suggestions?
    many thanks Diana

    I think the "tacky" way is to try to access it at regular intervals and, if a file error is returned, wait a while and try again. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Whether there is an elegant way, I couldn't tell you.

    I think that you can do this by turning off Background printing, but I've not tried this.
