automated PDF file from reports

Preview
We have many reports we manually save to PDF files and then print. This can take hours just saving to PDF and printing.

Once a report opens we touch our PDF icon on our tool bar(I believe this was downloaded). Then it saves to PDF as if it was printing( I guess this is the norm since we have PDF printer setup.

I would like to save(pdf format) and print theses reports automatically(button) on form.
The name I would like the pdf to be is(reportname-datestamp).

I'm having issues because of the PDF format
 

Export into Excel without saving first?

Preview
I have a report that has an Excel and PDF icons and when they are clicked, gives users a prompt to save either in Excel or PDF format.

My question is.would be it possible to override the saving part? Can you export it into Excel first then save? Users just wanna view the file in Excel without having to save the report first.

Is it possible? Can it be done using a macro of some sort
 

Rename dynamic report prior to converting to pdf

Preview
I currently have a report that works perfect. I have set up properties to convert the report to a pdf file and email it. Wonderful!

My issue - I would like to rename the report to data in an underlying query prior to it converting to a pdf and sending it off. I don't want to change the existing report, I simply want to do something like "Save as.pdf"

I'm not sure where to start. I undertsand "where conditions" and I was thinking that I might put a macro in Events prior to Opening the report?

Does anyone have an idea of how to approach this task? I'm not familiar with VB or SQL but I'm happy to do research if pointed in a direction

Renaming a report before SendObject

Preview
As have been tearing my hair out trying to work out how to rename a report from the name of the Report itself to one which takes the detail froma field called 'Invoice No' and renames the PDF to that before emailing.

so in a Macro I have the following. It all works just fine, but it sends the PDF name as 'InvoiceEmail' which is the report name itself. I really want it to change the name of the PDF to [Invoice No].pdf

Reading table fields to use as variable in macro

Preview
Currently I have a a macro in access that accepts a number(user input) and assigns it to tempvar for use within the macro. The macro then runs several queries and creates a report. I would like to write code to read a numeric field in a table and use that as the variable for use in the macro and create the report, then print the report to pdf. Ideally this would repeat these steps until EOF.
 

Do I Really Need to Use 54 Macros to Sent Separate report PDFs ?

Preview
am pretty new at this and don't have any VBA training but I am develoing a 2007 MS Access database for folks at work and could use a sanity check on what I am doing.

The dB will produce many reports based on different division and branch workload. At present to send a report as a PDF file I create a macro to Send Object from MS Access ribbon. I choose Report, select report name, choose PDF format and add description for the subject line of the mail window. The macro works fine and produces the PDF file of each record as I like. In doing so I'm up to over 50 macros that send out reports as PDF files.

Question: I assume their is a much easier way. What am I doing wrong ?
 

Save to PDF Button?

Preview
For the final step of my purchase order program/form, I need a button that saves the form to a .PDF file. I don't want it to save as a new record, just have it go and save as a .PDF. When I would click the button, it would save just the form to a .PDF and it would come up with the window where you would select your save location.

What would be the event/code to be able to do this
