I have an Access procedure (written in Basic) that prints 2 Access reports, and then opens Acrobat 6.0 to build 2 pdf files (from the reports).  Is there a line of code I can add to the procedure to close Acrobat 6.0 after the files have been created????
Thanks...Debbie

There's an option in Acrobat somewhere (I think it's in the printer settings) that stops Acrobat from launching after a PDF file is created.

Shane is right, print any document to Acrobat PDFWriter printer and when you get the save as screen up you will see a check box 'view pdf file' check this box off and all should be well.  Would like to see the code.
