Randy,

You certain can make this look seamless, and quick frankly this is how many 
newer systems are working.  You switch to that printer, have it produce the 
document silently to a location you manage, open it using a shell command or 
WIN32API.  The user can then close it and you can clean it up later, or move it 
somewhere for the user.

If you use the current version of QuickBooks, that exactly how they work...

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the idea.

Don't think MS Print to PDF will substitute as a seamless "Preview"
But it's certainly an idea worth entertaining.

I've not looked into how much we can configure MS Print/PDF to set the location 
and name of the document.

Maybe not ideal, but there is Microsoft Print to PDF built in to Windows 10.
