Using one report and exporting to individual PDF files

Using one report and exporting to individual PDF files
Views: 196
I am not that familiar with Access; however, I have managed to set up my tables, queries and reports.

The report contains expenditures which are grouped by Approver.

What I need to do is create multiple PDF files (could be some other format) that can be emailed to each approver.

I have seen this question on multiple forums, but no answers.

VBA to Export Report to Multiple .PDFs

VBA to Export Report to Multiple .PDFs Icon
I'm very new to VBA but have cobbled together the following code from a number of more experienced users online. I have a report called ITD Summary (Division) that has page breaks for each different BFR Name, and I'm trying to use this code to export each of these BFR Name sections of the report as individual .pdf files.

but it ends up exporting the entire report for each of the individual BFR Names rather than just the individual section of the report.
 

Possible to Export Reports to individual files based on Unique Data Field?

Possible to Export Reports to individual files based on Unique Data Field? Icon
I have a colleague that asked me a question regarding Access that I am sure can be done, and am guessing with some VBScript, but am unsure where to start. So, she has a report that is essentially a performance review with kpi's and other data metrics that is 2 pages per each unique technician.

The question is this - she wants to be able to save each tech's individual report in the following way: tech_A-07062012.pdf, tech_B-07062012.pdf, tech_C-07062012.pdf etc.

I know VBScript but do not know all the ins and outs of Access to know where to start with this.

Exporting Report Query To PDF

Exporting Report Query To PDF Icon
I am usiung the following code which is correctly running through a query and outputting PDF files. However, its not quite right.

The query behind the report contains 194 lines and raltes to call records. I want to output 194 pdf files with each pdf the report just for the related row in the query, not 194 copies of the entire report.

Private Sub Command0_Click() Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, pdfName As String, MyFilter As String, MyFilename As String, MyPath As String Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryCalls") rs.MoveFirst Do Until rs.EOF pdfName = rs("REF") & ".pdf" 'MyFilter = "Unique_Programs_Distinct.Program = '" & rs("program") & "'" MyPath = rs("MyPath") DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "RepCalls", acFormatPDF, MyPath & pdfName rs.MoveNext Loop rs.Close Exit_Create_PDF: Exit Sub End Sub
 

Automatically name a report when exporting to PDF

Automatically name a report when exporting to PDF Icon
I have a form with a command button that opens my report in print preview mode in Access 2007. When I click the Export to PDF/XPS button, the default file name is the name of the actual report within Access. I've used VBA to change the report caption to match a field on my form called PROGRAM. However, this does not transfer over when I want to save my report to pdf.

How can I make it so that when I click export to pdf/xps, the default file name is named after a text box called PROGRAM?
 

Report Renaming in Access

Report Renaming in Access Icon
I am printing a report from access in to a PDF document using a freeware called Cute PDF Writer. My requirement is to set the PDF name as a custom one taken from the report and should be saved.

In present scenario it is taking the report name as the DEFAULT name. for example my report name is SALES and when I print the report its coming default as SALES.pdf. But I need Alan Bakes.pdf where Alan Bakes is the organisation name which is there inside the report as a textbox.
 

Link PDF files

What would be the best way to link pdf files in an Access database form?

For each record there could be more then one pdf file. I would like to automate the process as much as possible. The pdf file would exist on a network drive and the user would need to go to their record in Access and then link the pdf files.

I started but am having problems with Access not opening the pdf file, it will open word files but not pdf,
 

Renaming a report before SendObject

Renaming a report before SendObject Icon
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
 

Display pdf attachment in report

Display pdf attachment in report Icon
I have a table that contains data pertinent to parts which are manufactured. For each record I have a part number, revision, manufacturer etc. I also have an attachment dataset which contains a single pdf.

I would like to generate a report that has one record per page and displays the pdf attachment.

Generating and formatting the report is no problem, but my pdf attachment only shows up as the acrobat icon.

my vba is pretty weak. If there is a better way of going about printing pdf attachments I am open to suggestions.
