Set a reference to teh MS Access library in references:

sub makeRPT()

Dim acApp As Access.Application
Dim rpt As Access.Report

acApp.OpenCurrentDatabase "DBPath"     'path of db to open
Set rpt = acApp.CreateReport(acApp.CurrentDb, ReportTemplate)    'ReportTemplate is name of rreport tmplate.

rpt.Print

end sub
