I am using Oracle Forms6i for developing front end.

I would like to know, How can I send a file to
Printer from Forms using API or any other method.
I am not using Oracle-Reports.

Thanks,

-Narendra

1. Built-in PRINT: prints the current window to a file or printer.
2. Via HOST: executes OS commands. In your case printing a text file would be like:
HOST('notepad /p c:mytext.txt');

Thanks Maaher.

But whether I can use any windows API call from forms to send any type of file, say MS-Word, to printer in background ?
