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.

    Dim strPath As String
 

    strPath = Me.Mail_Attachment_Path
 

    
 

    Dim stDocName As String
 

    Select Case Me.frame_Choices
 

        Case 1
 

        stDocName = "rpt_ANA"
 

        Case 2
 

            stDocName = "rpt_SUP"
 

        Case 3
 

            stDocName = "rpt_CSM"
 

        Case 4
 

            stDocName = "rpt_All"
 

        End Select
 

        
 

    
 

    'Send report as a snapshot  (works fine)
 

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rpt_RollUP", _
 

    acFormatSNP, "Q:\SPG\SRG\Operations\StatusReporting_Testing\Rollup.snp", True
 

  
 

    works fine
 

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rpt_All", _
 

    acFormatSNP, "Q:\SPG\SRG\Operations\StatusReporting_Testing\testRollup.snp", True
 

    
 

    Does not work
 

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "'" & stDocName & "'", _
 

    acFormatSNP, "'" & strPath & "'" & "'" & stDocName & "'", True
 
 
 

Exit_cmdCreatePDF_Click:
 

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
 

    Debug.Print Err.Description

you may need to add "\"


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