I have just moved my database from my C:\drive to a central server and as a result some of my codes are no longer working. with one code I am experiencing the following error ;
Runtime error "282"
The format in which are attempting to output the current object is not available.

When I hit the debug button it highlights the following line from my code.

I have downloaded saved and installed the  "SaveAsPDFandXPS" Add-in onto the server but it still comes up with the same message.
How can I make acformatPDF availble?
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "Emerald cash contract note", acFormatPDF, strfile, False
