Print Excel Doc

How can I use ExcelRW to print a bunch of existing Excel documents in the background (non-GUI)? Also, how can I specify printer settings for the operation?

Hi Marty, ExcelRW is purely an abstraction over the Excel file format (BIFF 8). It does not have any of the capabilities of Excel itself. To print Excel documents you can read the files using ExcelRW and then use one of the following options. 1) Generate an HTML or PDF document and then print those. 2) Populate Essential Grid and use Essential Grid to print (no-ui needed). 3) Directly output file contents to the printer. The rendering code for this could be complex depending on the structure of the Excel file and how much formatting is involved. 4) Use a reporting engine. ExcelRW could be used to easily produce a rich report using an external reporting engine. Please do let us know if you need any additional information. Best regards, Daniel
