I've been try to use the Multi Sheet Plot routine that's provided with the Inventor 2014 install.
I'm attempting to plot both Vaulted and Non-Vaulted idw and Inventor .dwg files.
Regardless of drawing type or location, the Multi Sheet Plot routine is unable to print any files. The application reports a failed while reading error. None of the settings within the application seem to have any effect on eliminating the read file errors.
What steps must I follow in order to successfully print multiple sheets of a designated printer??
Any tips, suggestions or errata on this subject would be most welcomed!

Solved! by rdyson. See the answer in context.
I have not installed Inventor 2014 Service Pack 1 as of yet.
I did notice however in the Service Pack Readme file, that Service Pack 1 addresses an issue attempting to plot .idw files. We are experiencing an issue while working with Inventor 2013 and Inventor 2014 DWG files.
I'll be happy to report back once the Service Pack has been installed.
I cannot speak for vault, but use the task sheduler instead, IMHO it is better than Multisheet plot.
If that does not work either, then it might be one true view or that is faulty.
Sorry head halfway up my *****
Please excuse the above typo's but I guess you get the idea of the message.
--- If that does not work either, then it might be True view that is faulty.----
I am under the impression that that is what is used to generate the prints for Multisheet plot, where Task Scheduler loads inventor to generate the print.
Installing Inventor 2014 Service Pack 1 seems to have solved this problem. Until the Service Pack was installed, the Autodesk Multi-Sheet Plot application was unable to read Inventor 2014 DWG files. With the Service Pack installed, said files are now able to be read and go on for further processing.
Thank you rdyson for your timely suggestion.
