    I am trying to print an HTML file using "Run" command line.
    I believe I should use the switch 'p', I am not sure about the correct syntax. I am typing something like this:

    iexplore -p c:\test2.html

    Thanks in advance,
    Miryam

    Why cant you just right click on the file and select print. Cant say that I have ever heard of a -p switch for IE.

    Hi,
    Thanks for answering.

    The reason is that I am building a client application running on Windows 2000, (using OracleForms 6i), and I would like to add a button on the screen that would just print the file the user has selected.
    The files to be printed are HTML files.

    Ideally, I would pass to the the button the file name, and then a command would be executed.

    Someone told me that if I'd use the following :

    iexplore someflag filename

    it would do the trick. Any suggestions?

    Thanks
