Syntax to OutputTo acOutputReport using string values

I am trying to pass a string as the ObjectName  and OutputFile values in the OutputTo acOutputReport function.  It works fine when I explicitly use the report name and path name in double quotes, but when I us the stDocName and strPath strings, I get an error message.  Can you help me with the syntax?

Error message received:  The report name ''rpt_All'' you entered in either the property sheet or macro is misspelled or refers to a report that doesn't exist.

you may need to add "\"


DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, stDocName , acFormatSNP, strPath &"\"& stDocName , True
