Using one report and exporting to individual PDF files
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.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
but it ends up exporting the entire report for each of the individual BFR Names rather than just the individual section of the report.
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.
The report needs to be exported with a certain filename. 2 parts of the filename need to be derived from a form.
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
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?
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.
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,
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
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.
-Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional
Currently our users are exporting reports one-by-one and then combining them after to a single pdf for printing.
Is there a way to export multiple reports to a single pdf file from Access?
