Change Header Before Printing Text File

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel › VBA

I'm trying to change the header, with code, when Notepad opens from the click of a button on an Excel userform.
I've scoured this site, and the web, trying to find an answer to my question, but I haven't had any luck yet.
My code, so far, looks like this:
Shell ("Notepad.exe /p C:\Business\Summaries\" & ListBox1.Object), vbHide
I just needed it to open the text file long enough to load it, print it, and close Notepad right away without seeing the program at all.
Is there a way to change the header after Notepad opens, or am I stuck with the header Microsoft applies to each text file?
I didn't want to mess with the registry if at all possible, but that's starting to look like my final option at this point.
I can live with it as-is, because it works fine, but you know how some things bother you if it's not quite up to your standards?
