I think that all you need to do is set up your fax software as a printer, then set the report to have a specific printer == your fax printer.

If you try and do this manually you will need to use a tapi or fax API - or anything that supports fax protocols.

I agree with Simon simply set up your fax machine as a printer.

Once you have set up a fax machine as printer you can either set the fax machine as default printer or use.

Dim x As Printer

'select the fax printer
For Each x In Printers
    If UCase(x.DeviceName) = ("FAX PRINTER NAME" Then 'Use Uppercase
        Set Printer = x
    End If

Next x
