Linking with MS Word!

I want to print my MS Word Document from my VB program, is there anyway I can link to this file so that I can print straight from the VB program I wrote. I have already created this MS Word file and I want to open this file straight from the VB program. I can open the MS Word program but not the .DOC file I created.

I would be grateful I anyway can help me on this.

    Easy with automation, assuming Word is installed on the pc you want to print from-

    [code]
    'PROJECT, REFERENCES..., must set a ref. to-
    'microsoft word 10.0 object library
    Dim WordApp As Word.Application

    Const MyDoc = "C:word.doc" 'sample word document


    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'init word object
    Set WordApp = New Word.Application
    'show word
    WordApp.Application.Visible = True
    'open word file
    WordApp.Documents.Open MyDoc
    'printpreview
    'WordApp.PrintPreview = True
    'print to printer
    WordApp.PrintOut
    End Sub

    Private Sub Command2_Click()
    'save document
    'WordApp.Documents.Item(MyDoc).Save
    'close document
    'WordApp.Documents.Item(MyDoc).Close False
    'quit word
    WordApp.Quit
    'release resouces
    Set WordApp = Nothing
    End Sub
    [/code]
