Hi Julio,

Try the following.
In my case, I pass this method a Folder Name and a Document name. This is 
because I deal with multi-language documents kept in separate folders. 
The user sees a name of the document without the “.pdf”.

You could just remove those lines and populate $tFileName with the full system 
path to the document you want to print.

Hope this helps,





$cmd_t:="lp -d \"printerName\" \"documentPath\""
$tPathNameX:=Convert path system to POSIX($tFileName)
$cmd_t:=Replace string($cmd_t;"printerName";Get current printer)
$cmd_t:=Replace string($cmd_t;"documentPath";$tPathNameX)

LAUNCH EXTERNAL PROCESS($cmd_t;$in_t;$out_t;$error_t)
