When using OLE Automation to Microsoft Word 2000 or Microsoft Word 97 for Windows SR-1 or higher that prints a file, and then releases, closes, or quits the Word object, the following warning message might appear:
Word is currently printing. Quitting Word will cancel all pending print jobs. Do you want to quit Word?
property of the Word.Application object returns the number of jobs in Word's Background Printing queue. By checking the value of this property, you can avoid the error message without disabling Background Printing.
The following sample code shows one way to use this property:
oWord = CREATEOBJECT('Word.Application')
.Visible = .T.
.Selection.InsertAfter("Mark, why does that crate have air holes?")
DO WHILE .BackgroundPrintingStatus > 0
DOEVENTS() && Make sure you leave the OS enough time to update
&& the property
*!* =INKEY(.1) && Use INKEY if you're running under VFP 3.0
.Application.Quit(0) && Quit, don't save and don't prompt
