I have a series of 5 Access reports that should be printed in a sequence.
With 4 everything works well, but adding the 5 does not work when printing - Previewing is ok.

Private Sub cmdPrintAll_Click()

On Error GoTo Err_cmdPrintAll_Click
 

    Dim stDocName As String

    Dim PrintParam

    

    PrintParam = acNormal

    

'    PrintParam = acPreview

    

    stDocName = "rptKPI123"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, PrintParam

    stDocName = "rptKPI4"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, PrintParam

    stDocName = "rptKPI56"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, PrintParam

    stDocName = "rptKPI7"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, PrintParam

    stDocName = "rptKPI8"

    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, PrintParam

    

Exit_cmdPrintAll_Click:

    Exit Sub
 

Err_cmdPrintAll_Click:

    MsgBox Err.Description

    Resume Exit_cmdPrintAll_Click

    

End Sub

No point in declaring PrintParm and setting it = acPreview.  Try replacing PrintParm in each of the DoCmd lines with acPreview.  Why complicate matters any more than they need be.  Assuming 'Adding the 5' means Adding the 5th - rptKPI8 - does rptKPI8 have any data, and is there code that says if no data cancel the print?

I only added the PrintParm to make it easier to wswitch between acPreview and acPrint to test if preview worked when print did not, and replacing it with what was originally acPrint makes no difference.

Yes you are right - it WAS adding the 5th report.

All reports take data from the  same open (tabbed) form in the same way, and there will always be data. No code for cancel if no data.

sorry - acNormal it was.

I want the reports printed, but as the last one did not turn up I tried the acPreview, where it DID turn up.

However, in the meantime I have discovered, that the missing, 5th report is actually being sent to a different printer, as my testprint of it earlier was on a colourprinter (for shows).

So I believe it was all a storm in a teacup, but thanks for you help anyway - you will get my points.

Thanks,
Ib

Can only say "Partially" as you did not have all the details needed.
