    I am looking for a way to batch print a directory of different office 97 files (MSWord,Excel & Powerpoint) to an Adobe Acrobat printer. Any suggestions

    I don't suppose the obvious solution of high-lighting all the files and dragging them to the "printer" would work? (I don't have an Acrobat printer, so am unable to test this.)

    I have tried that, but because there are about 30 files and the default printer has to be set to Adobe, it is not an ideal situation. I find the pc hangs when you ask it to process too many files at once.

    I was going to suggest a solution using WSH, but, I just noticed you are still using Windows 95. Only other possibility would be via a VB program/VBA macro.

    One can download WSH for Windows 95, but of course it comes with the baggage of virus vulnerability!
