Default Macro Question

i was told by someone to create a macro to print a pdf from within a word
document. I can create a macro butmy question is how would i be able to
print another file from within the word document? i have a word document
Master.doc and the file i would like to print is fw9.pdf. I would only like
to print fw9.pdf when i print master.doc. Is this possible? Or should i just
convert the pdf to word? and if so can you recommend a program

Thanks

Tom

You can't use Word to print a pdf file so far as I know.

With additional software you can create a pdf file from a Word file, and
then you can use a macro to produce such a pdf file.

In order to print a PDF from Word, you must have software such as Adobe
Acrobat or one of its clones, and if you have that, you shouldn't need a
macro. Acrobat, for example, installs a toolbar with a button to Convert to
Adobe PDF.
