[AccessD] DoCmd.OutputTo problem

Actually found what seems to be the solution by removing the last three
arguments and just ending the statement with the file name.

I'll have to see now whether that works on the client's box.

Hi Rocky

The format string is incorrect. It is easier to use the constant (resolves
to "PDF Format (*.pdf)":

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptRentalAgreement", acFormatPDF,
strRAPDFName, False, , , acExportQualityPrint

Dear list:


This is Access 2010 question.  I have an app which needs to output a report
in pdf format.  I'm using the statement:


DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptRentalAgreement", "PDFFormat(*.pdf)",
strRAPDFName, False, "", , acExportQualityPrint


When the program reaches this statement, it does not create the pdf, does
not go to the next statement, and does not give a run time error.


I can't find anything on the web forums addressing this particular problem.


Any ideas?
