Topic: Printing Reports to PDF programmatically

I have a MS Access app that has a form with a list of information. There is a preview button on it that calls VB code which appears to generate a Report on the fly. What I am looking for help with is to then take this report and print it to a PDF.

I have run through the process manually and it works using the exact steps above. I then click Print... and select Adobe PDF Writer from the Printer dialog and it creates the document in the location and with the name that I have given it.

This form has 25600 records associated with it so as you can imagine, I would like to automate this process and batch the name and location using a specific naming convention including the ID.

Any suggestions on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks -


PS- I have Adobe Acrobat 5 and am on Win 2k
