[archive] Faxing using Microsoft Fax Server

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 22 April 2004]

I'm using Win2000 fax service and have a fax 'printer' set up in the Printers folder. I am able to accomplish single fax submissions with an entry in my cobol config file that points to this fax 'printer'. This prompts the user with the faxing dialog box, which is great for single document fax transmissions. BUT, I also need to be able to create a batch style cobol program that will fax out invoices to the appropriate fax numbers found in a customer (Vision) file and not prompt the user with the fax dialog box.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

I am sorry I don't have the time currently to provide you with some straight forward ACUCOBOL-GT code. But this task should be fairly simple and straight forward.
If you are somewhat comfortable with the VB syntax, here is Microsofts own documentation on this:

If you succeed, please share with us others, if you run into problems, come along and we will look at it together.
