Topic: converting Access reports in pdf
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 52438

I would like to convert access reports in pdf. It works like a charm with the following code ("c:ywo" is a watched folder from Distiller):

Function ConvertAccessFile() As String
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

Dim msAccess As Access.Application

Dim strDB As String
Dim strDestinationFile As String
Dim strWatchInPath As String

Set msAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application.8")
strWatchInPath = "c:\ywo\in\"
strDestinationFile = strWatchInPath + ""

msAccess.Visible = True
strDB = "c:\temp\test.mdb"
msAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase strDB
msAccess.DoCmd.OpenReport "Bericht"

' Cleanup
msAccess.Application.Quit acExit
Set msAccess = Nothing

ConvertAccessFile = True
Exit Function

My question is:

How can I give to Access an other name for the ps file? I havve seen examples with Powerpoint and Word on (Karl de Abrew), as:

' Format the destination filename
strDestinationFile = strWatchInPath + Left(strSourceFile, _
Len(strSourceFile) - 4) + ".ps"
' Print the PPT to a PS file in the watched folder
msPPT.ActivePresentation.PrintOut _

But til now I didn't find the same in Access.

Can someone shed some light on this problem?
Thanks a lot !!!
