Printing within Word, very simple addin query

I am just embarking on a new project. I've used Outlook Security Manager in a previous project with fabulous results.

I need functionality within Word to simply print the current document to a fixed, named printer. I can do it simply enough with a Word macro but I'll want to roll this out to several hundred Citrix users so a COM addin seems the more sensible way to go about it.

So, will Addin Express allow me to print the current document to a named printer and will I have the full Delphi functionality available from within the addin (socket comms, API access etc)?

Hi Angus,

I think that the answer is yes for both you questions. An Add-in Express based COM Add-in for MS Word has access to the same Object Model as a Word macro, plus almost all Delphi functionality (as far as I remember there may be some problems with non-modal Delphi forms).

P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them.
Besides, it may take us some time to investigate your issue. Please be sure we will let you know as soon as the best possible solution is found.
