when I call IE as COM and open PrintPreview and set Header/Footer, i use ExecWB(). The third parameter is VT_ARRAY. How shall create this VT_ARRAY. Every syntax with VT_ARRAY fails. Or is this a two dimensional SAFEARRAY??
Tanks guenter

	print "start";
	$ie = new COM("InternetExplorer.Application");
	while ($ie->Busy) sleep(1);
Microsofts msdn says:
If pvaIn (third parameter) is a VARIANT of type VT_ARRAY, pvaIn specifies a SAFEARRAY containing (in the following order) a
header BSTR, a
footer BSTR, the
address of an IStream pointer for a Microsoft? Outlook? Express header document, an
alternate URL BSTR used for MSHTML in Outlook Express, and a
DWORD containing flags.

	$aArray[0]= "header";
	$aArray[1]= "footer";
	$aArray[2]= null;
	$aArray[3]= "";
	$aArray[4]= 1|2;

	$aVariantArray=new Variant ($aArray,VT_ARRAY|VT_BYREF);


	print "stop";

can you point me to the headerfile describing the command ids (first parameter). acording to msdn they are defined in mshtmcid.h, but in my version of the file IDM_PRINTPREVIEW is 2003 and IDM_PRINT is 27 though 7 opens the print preview for me.

next msdn only describes the pvaIn that way for IDM_PRINT, for IDM_PRINTPREVIEW i only found

"pvaIn VARIANT of type VT_BSTR that specifies the path to a custom template. May be set to NULL to use the Microsoft? Internet Explorer default print template."

maybe i'm searching at the wrong place, i'd appreciate a few further hints.
