Quickly outputting existing file to PDF or NWP Preview

Post by bluesfannoz »

At the conference someone asked if you could quickly output an existing file to PDF or Preview. This is how we have done it.

At Commmand Prompt

Type filename >"pdf:/reader"

Type filename >"Preview:/Default"

Type filename >”pdf:/reader,PrintFile=filename.pdf” ---> standalone pc

Type filename >”pdf:/reader,PrintFile=@::/directorystructureofyourchoice/filename.pdf” ---> mac

Type filename >”pdf:/reader,PrintFile=@::\directorystructureofyourchoice\filename.pdf” ---> pc client/server

In code:

10000 Execute "Type filename >"&CHR$(34)&"pdf:/reader,Printfile=filename.pdf"&CHR$(34)
