This Word macro allows you to print a Word Document with one click.  The Word Auto Print macro is designed to be called off your Outlook Calendar using the Word Calendar Reminder Macros.  Leveraging your Outlook Calendar you can schedule Word Documents to automatically print reoccurring monthly, weekly, whenever you need!  Printing is only delayed by a Message Box ensuring that you are available to pickup the printout.  (This Message Box can be suppressed so you do not have to confirm your availability before the document is printed)  Don’t let printing a meeting agenda delay valuable collaboration time instead schedule for it to happen automatically on your Outlook Calendar!
