pdfcamp batch printing

what's the acronym to have a batch print file to use the filename of the file being printed? Where do I get user docs for batch (several single page files appended in a batch file)?
Does the 64 bit version of pdfCamp support batch as above? Same user interface as 32 bit?
=========================================

============================================
No, I print from an excel file.
I have a macro that gets data ftom each row, fills in a form for ea row, prints this form and appends to an output file with the name of the data file.

How 'bout my other questtions:
1. what's the acronym (pdfcamp) to have a batch print file to use the filename of the file being printed?
2. Where do I get user docs (pdfcamp) for batch (several single page files appended in a batch file)?
==============================================

Hi,

>>1. what's the acronym (pdfcamp) to have a batch print file to use the filename of the file being printed?

Pdfcamp does read the filename from registry, so you need set the filename to registry before you print your document to PDFcamp Printer.
>>2. Where do I get user docs (pdfcamp) for batch (several single page files appended in a batch file)?

>2.How do I make an output file without bringing up the "Save As" dialog?
A: There have three ways can do it:
(1) Make the "PDFcamp Printer" the default printer.
(2) Set the "PDFcamp Printer" printer preferences, such as "Batch output directory", "Encryption" etc.
(3) In Windows Explorer...select multiple files and then right-click on them...then select the print command from the shortcut menu; those files will be auto converted to PDF files without user intervention.

Notes:
*You can use our BatchToPDF software to convert many documents (.doc,.rtf,etc.) to PDF files at one time.

*If you are a software developer using Visual Basic or a similar language, you can control the output file name by adding an entry to the Windows registry. PDFcamp Pro reads a string registry value (REG_SZ) named "AutomaticDirectory" from the following location:
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp"
There are four values you must pay attention to...
AutomaticDirectory:
The "AutomaticDirectory" value should be set to the full path name of the PDF file; it can also be set to the full path name of a directory where the PDF file will print to.

AutomaticOutput: You can set the following values for "AutomaticOutput"...
0: The user will be prompted to enter a file name (if 0 is set, the "AutomaticDirectory" value is ignored).
1: Enables "AutomaticDirectory" but will rename/overwrite/append the output file if the destination file exists.

AutomaticValue:
1: Rename if file exist
2: Overwrite if file exist
3: Insert before first page if file exist
4: Append to last page if file exist

AutoView:
0: Does not view pdf file after create
1: Auto view pdf file after create

For example:
AutomaticOutput = 1 //does not popup dialog
AutomaticValue = 4  //overwrite if file exist
AutomaticDirectory = "C:\output.pdf"  //set output pdf filename
AutoView = 0  //does not open pdf file after it created

Please refer to a piece of source code at below,

pdf = "d:\pdfcamp.pdf"
set wsh=CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wsh.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp\AutomaticOutput",1,"REG_DWORD"
wsh.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp\AutomaticValue","2","REG_DWORD"
wsh.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp\AutomaticDirectory",pdf
wsh.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp\AutoView","0","REG_DWORD"
If you wish use PDFcamp Printer on 64bit system, you need download and install 64bit version of PDFcamp Printer from following web page,

http://www.verypdf.com/pdfcamp/pdfcamp.htm#dl

http://www.verypdf.com/pdfcamp/pdfcamp-printer-x64.exe

On the 64bit system, you need set following options to registry before you print a document to PDFcamp Printer,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432node\verypdf\pdfcamp
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\WOW6432node\verypdf\pdfcamp
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\verypdf

AutomaticDirectory=C:\out.pdf    Type is: "REG_SZ"
AutomaticOutput=1                        Type is: "REG_DWORD"
AutomaticValue=4                           Type is: "REG_DWORD"
AutoView=0                                      Type is: "REG_DWORD"

Please double check the "Type" carefully, if you use "REG_SZ" type for "AutomaticOutput" or "AutomaticValue" or "AutoView", your values will not work.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have question on this.

Thank you!

    Hi VeryPDF,

    Thank you for sending me the latest version. However, my issue still remains. I am trying to print to a specific file using VB. My macro using the following reg keys to control the output of the files I need to generate...

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\verypdf\pdfcamp]
    AutomaticOutput
    AutomaticValue
    AutomaticDirectory
    AutoView

    This method no longer works. Have the reg keys changed? Is there something else I can configure to make this work again?

    Thank & Regards,
