Topic: Saving a PDF File automatically

Hello all,

I'm trying to print and Access 2000 report to a PDF without having to use the save as dialog box for the file name. I placed the correct parameters in all .ini files involved (win.ini, PDFWritr.ini) but it still pops-up. A few things of note.

It worked before when I was on Win 98 OS using PDFWriter 3.0 AND 5.0

It stopped working when I upgraded to Win XP still using Acrobat 5.0, apparently because XP doesn't use the Win.ini file like Win98 needs to. Even with adding the same fields that made this automated process work in Win 98/Acrobat 5.0, it still does not work in XP.

I've looked through the PDFWriter SDK 5.0 and can't seem to find what I need. It mentioned bDocInfo=0 as an option to suppress the prompt but that is not working either.

Even if I can simulate the filename being typed in and the pressing of the "OK" button, that would be fine.

Either way, I am in DESPERATE need of DETAILED suggestions of what to type and where. Please offer any assistance you can.
