PDF Factory and Access97

There have been a few topics about this however I can't see to make any of the other solutions do quite what I need the app to do.  I need to export a report to a pdf file to a hardcoded location.  We are running Access97 and have the PDF Factory Pro installed.  I want this to be automated so when the user hits the button it creates the PDF without opening up a dialog box.  Suggestions?

Hi missinglink28604,

it might help, it contains a sample mdb too.

Jjafferr, thank you for the file but I cannot open the MDB in 97..is it a access2k file?

Shanesue, Thanks for the link I have been looking a that a good portion of the day.  Some of the registry keys referred to are not on my machine.  That looks like the route I would like to go.  I am running Win 2K, and the PDF Factory Pro Server...would that make a difference?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It shouldn't make a difference, but since I only used PDF Factory very briefly (for about two hours), I can't vouch for it. If the keys aren't on your machine, you could try creating them to see if the application will recognise them.

missinglink28604,

I can download the mdb and save it as A97, but I don't have access to our ftp now,
so if you wish, you can email me then I can send it to you.
The example doesn't use PDF Factory, it uses Ghostscript.

Shanesue,  That worked...took some on the fly registry entries, but works like a charm.  Never thought about creating them if they were not there.  Thanks.

Jaffer,  I appreciate your help and time with this project as well.
