I found a partial answer to my original post... I found a component online and install it into Office2007. I runs great. When I bring the report in Access, I can do a 'file/save-as' a PDF.... cool... the only thing is that when I run the db as a stand alone app, I can not access it... :-(

So I need a button (either in the report itself? or on the page that selects the report to direct it thru code to output it as PDF...

Here is the link to that component you can install into Office2007 for PDF/XPS output in the "file/save-as":

The instructions are on the page...

BUT ! back to my other problem... How can I program a button to perform the output to PDF in my code ?

I eagerly await any help...



Place this code in the click event of a button should do the job

docmd.OutputTo acOutputReport,"Myreport",acFormatPDF,"c:\myreport.pdf"
