automated PDF file from reports
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?
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.

Rename dynamic report prior to converting to pdf
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
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
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 ?
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?
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

Report Caption
I am using Access 2010. I would like to know if there is a way, when a report is opened, that the name of the report can be based off of a field within the report as well as a standard name.

For example, when I open the service report for customer Johnson, I would like when I export the report (via email or save as pdf) that the report name be Johnson Service Report, rather than Service Report. This name would also change when I open the service report for cusotmer Wilcox, the report name would then be Wilcox Service Report. Is this possible?

This way when I save the pdf to the digital file I do not have to rename it, as well as if I am sending the report via email the specific customer will be noted in the report name without having to change it manually.

Version: Access 2007
Problem: I have a report that I wish to output as a pdf. I have several pdf printer programs that I use for various purposes.

I have created a report that is an exact duplicate of the standard printed report, I go through the page setup section and select a specificprinter (which is one of the pdf writers).

I save the report but when I re-open it or try to execute it, the printer setup has not been saved.

Export to PDF and Email Report
I have a report called [Banners Order Confirmation]. What I would like to do is with a click of a button, export the report as a pdf to a specified drive and folder and save it with a name by combining 2 fields from the report. Also, I would like to email this report to an email address which is also specified by a field on the report. I have tried different vb codes and have been very unsuccessful. Could you please help me or at least point me in some dirrection?

Emails with a Macro
I currently have a Macro called by a "save/email" button. This macro will email (EmailDatabaseObject) the current form out to several users as a .pdf. In design view of this macro, there were only a few items available.
Object Type, Object Name, Output Format, Subject, Message Text, etc.

Is it possible somehow to modify this macro to include the current record number or another field? So the email recipients wouldn't have to open up the .pdf? For example, the message text of the
email would include "09012A0000". Or, the .pdf attachment would be the name of the record?

VBA to create PDF and folder if doesn't exist!
But I've managed to write a code that saves the current report as pdf to specific folder, if this folder already exists, then pdf will be created, if folder doesn't exist then folder will be created and then pdf, which will be attached to Outlook mail after.

but sometimes when I execute it, it creates the specific folder, but doesn't save the pdf as I get OutputTo error ' Microsoft | Access can't save the output data to the file you've selected.'

Save, rename and email report
I'm in Access 2007 and stuck.

I've been trying to do this with a macro, but I think I'll need some VBA to get all functionality. Unfortunately its been several years since Ive written any code, and the knowledge seems to have left me. Im hoping one of you has done this and will be able to provide the code.

My needed process has several steps.

1 - save PDF to specified file path
2 - save as file name derived from the query that feeds the report
3 email the file to an address specified in the query that feeds the report.
3 name emailed file and populate subject line from fields in the same query.
