Hello all,

I am trying to create a job that sends .SFF (Symform) files to a print queue via the Print Document task, but the files are printing garbage when invoked by the task. We have installed the SFF viewer on the Visual Cron server and we can view and print the files directly from it, so the file association exists. Is there a way to make the Print Document task recognize file types that are not in the dropdown list (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)? Or is there a different way to do it?

Thanks,
Amy

That Task only support some specific types.

You can probably create a vbscript (vbs) and run with vbs Task:

CreateObject("Shell.Application").Namespace(0).ParseName("c:\test\yourfile.sff").InvokeVerb ("Print")
