    Need Auto Print, Auto move Utility

    I'm looking for a utility to monitor a directory, and print all DOCS in the dir, then move them to a different dir.
    Can anyone out there please point me in the right direction?
    Thanks
    Dave

    Are the DOCs to which you refer MS Word Documents? If that's the case, it would be quite a simple matter to do this from a Word macro, and somebody here could doubtless knock one up for you.

    Thanks Alan. Yes, however...

    They are MS Word docs. I want to be able to VPN into a client's computer, transfer the DOCs, and leave.
    I want a utility that will run unattended, say every 15 minutes, as a 'Service', scan the dir for for DOCs, print and move them elsewhere.
    Can an MS Word macro run unattended and do this error-free? Could the client accidentally interfere or shut it down by restarting the box?
    I use MS Word macros a lot, usually for automated document creation, and I've seen them do great things, so nothing would surprise me, but I need something 'bulletproof'.
    Whaddaya say?

    David,

    What you wanted exactly matching definitions for "virus" and "spyware". <img src=/S/stop.gif border=0 alt=stop width=26 height=24> Your requirements partly remind MyDoom and Sircam routine. <img src=/S/shocked.gif border=0 alt=shocked width=15 height=15> Are you on the right forum? <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    But you can map a folder on the client's computer through VPN, tell the user to create his documents in this folder and run a macro or VBScript to print and move all documents from this folder. To run a macro or a script periodically, create a loop and use SLEEP method to suspend the execution for a specified interval.
