After some time I was able to figure out how to print to pdf using a batch printer and the ActiveX.  Now, the batch printer is available to be selected as a printer.  I want to remove the batch printer and recreate it only as needed.  How can I do that?

Hi Dave,

Good question.

AS I recall, the ActiveX will create the batch printer automatically if one is not there, but I did not put any code to remove the printer after the fact. However, the removal of the printer is easily done via an VBA API call.

The API Function is "DeletePrinter". I found some sample code here which should get you going in the right direction:
