Hi Shari,

Using AppleScript on Mac or VBScript on Windows, you
can tell Word to open a file and print it, and control
just about every other aspect of the process,
including putting two files together.

If you just want to open them, you can use the
'launch' command, of course. Otherwise you're going to
have to learn some other scripting languages :-)
