Thanks very much for the tip.
This is much cleaner than the macro method.

A question: is it possible to disable the printer dialog with this mehtod?The macro method has the advantage that it doesn't require clicking okay at each dialog.

I don't think there is any general way to disable a dialog that may come up. Some programs bring up a dialog and some don't. Microsoft Word is one of those programs that brings up a Print dialog. Apple's TextEdit.app doesn't.

If your Microsoft Word documents are simple enough that TextEdit can open and interpret them OK, then you can change the "Open With" settings for those .doc files so that they are handled by TextEdit instead. Then print them using the Desktop Printer of the Virtual Printer.
