Is there a way to print a batch of files without opening each of them in OOo?


You can print a batch of files by printing from the command line. I have tested this in Ubuntu Linux but it should work in any Linux or Windows.

openoffice -pt "PRINTER-NAME" FILENAME

where:

PRINTER-NAME is the name of your printer as shown in the "File|Print" menu.
FILENAME is the name of the file you wish to print

e.g. To print the spreadsheet 'accounts.ods'

openoffice -pt "PSC-2350" accounts.ods

You can print a batch of files by using a wildcard in the filename.

e.g. To print all the spreadsheets in the current directory:

openoffice -pt "PSC-2350" *.ods
