The syntax is
AccessObject.DoCmd.OpenReport <"REPORTNAME">,[view type]

Dim objAccess As New Access.Application
Set objAccess = New Access.Application
    objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vb98\biblio.mdb"

'Give acViewPreview to preview the report.
 
objAccess.DoCmd.OpenReport "AuthorReport", acViewPreview


The View Type has 3 options:
acViewDesign
acViewNormal(Default)
acViewPreview


acViewNormal prints the report immediately. If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acViewNormal) is assumed.
