Save Report as PDF

I'm using the following code that I got from Experts to setup a report to print to PDF but it still sends the report to my default printer.  The fields in the DevStructure table just end up saying "Long Binary Data" so I'm not sure if the The PrtDevMode and PrtDevNames part is working.  I'm using Access 2000.  Any suggestions?

Private Sub Command0_Click()
   
   Dim db As Database
   Dim rs As Recordset
   Dim rpt As Report
   Dim strReportName As String
   strReportName = "PDFSettings"
       
   DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName, acViewDesign
   
   Set db = CurrentDb
   Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("DevStructure")
   Set rpt = Application.Reports(strReportName)
   
   rs.AddNew
   rs.Fields(0) = rpt.PrtDevMode
   rs.Fields(1) = rpt.PrtDevNames
   rs.Update
   rs.Close
   
   DoCmd.Close acReport, strReportName, acSaveNo
   
End Sub

Now, next time you want to print a report to PDF, use the following code.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
   Dim db As Database
   Dim rs As Recordset
   Dim rpt As Report
   Dim strReportName As String
 
   strReportName = "REPORT_NAME"
   
   Set db = CurrentDb
   Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("DevStructure")
       
   DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName, acViewDesign
       
   Set rpt = Application.Reports(strReportName)
           
   rs.MoveFirst
   rpt.PrtDevMode = rs.Fields(0)
   rpt.PrtDevNames = rs.Fields(1)
   rs.Close
   
   DoCmd.OpenReport strReportName, acViewNormal
   DoCmd.Close acReport, strReportName, acSaveNo
   
End Sub

I solved my own problem.  I changed my report to print to Docucom PDF Driver instead of PDF Writer and now it seems to work.
