gchalupa@inetnebr.com In this example I take the basic concept described earlier and use it in a more efficient way to print on a regular basis. This makes for quicker print times and less strain on the server. Instead of creating a new application object each time you print, you create it in the Global.asa as an application object.

In this example I take the basic concept described earlier and use it in a more efficient way to print on a regular basis. This makes for quicker print times and less strain on the server. Instead of creating a new application object each time you print, you create it in the Global.asa as an application object. Then each time you print you only need to create a new document. This means that you have Word and/or Excel running constantly, but it means that you won't have multiple copies running, and that it doesn't need to start each time you print.

This is based on the following two articles.
Printing Excel Documents from ASP
Printing Word Documents from ASP

You will need to follow the preliminary steps outlined in one of the other articles as well. I will not place the source code here, but in a zip file. It is fully commented, and follows the same concept as the other examples. You can download it here.

I used ideas from a couple of different places to put this together and I need to mention them.
