    Control Office Apps from the Windows RUN command (2003)

    Hi.

    I found this tip on the web for Powerpoint:

    To print your presentation without even opening PowerPoint:
    1. Click the Windows Start button in the lower left hand corner.
    2. Select "Run"
    3. Type "POWERPNT.EXE /p filetoprint.PPT" into the text field. Replacing filetoprint.PPT, with the name of the PowerPoint presentation that you wish to print.

    I also know that Jan Karel and Jefferson has provided something like this for Excel and Word , to reset Excel / Word if there are any bugs in it. Something like: EXCEL.EXE /??? or WORD.EXE /???

    I would like to know if there are any other switches that can be used in the RUN command to control office.

    Tx
    Regards,
    Rudi

    You can simply right-click a file (Word doc, Excel workbook, PowerPoint presentation) and select Print from the popup menu.
