Printing PDF's in Order
I have a problem and was wondering if someone with more knowledge than me on the subjetc could help out.
I have a folder with many PDF's (over 200) that have to be printed farily often in order. The PDF's are named so that when viewed in a folder, they are already in ascending order. The problem I have is that when I select all and select print, the PDF's do not print out in order. Some of the bigger sized PDF's (over 2 megs) do not fully print out as well using this technique.
I created a cmd line script that opens each PDF and prints them and then closes the document.
@ ECHO OFF
FOR %%i in (*.pdf) DO (ECHO Printing %%i...) && ("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe" /p /h "%%i")
But the problem with this is that Adobe stays open even after each single PDF prints so I have to close Adobe before the next one prints.
I was wondering if someone knows of any solution. I hope this isn't too complicated.

the kill command did not work as I had hoped. Thanks for the advice though, I appreciate it
