so far? I use excel to create a .sqy query, then read that into the vault search tool, then hit find, then print pdf, REPEAT find, print pdf 34 times. Actually, they were the whole of a certan lifecycle's population, so, i got lucky and was able to check the whole vault out and have a macro print all with the lifecycle they all shared.
But I won't have that luxury next time I need to print a list of drawings. They all will be released, which makes them indistinct status from the larger population of released documents.
I know I probably can mod the macro I used to read from a text array to find a matching drawing and print it. But that isn't that great a solution since no examples are around to handle that type of array process.
