Access 2007 macro Output to command to create pdf files from report.

I have a macro which uses "Output to" command to create pdf file from report.  The report's source is a table with multiple records.  Instead of creating one pdf file, I need multiple files based on PLANID field in the report.  Can this be done with this command.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, this can be done with a macro.  
A low tech approach will be to create multiple copies of the report.  Each report filtered by the PLANID field.  Then, in the Macro, use the Output to, PDF option for each of these reports.   The options on the action permit specific naming for each file.

No, it cannot be with this command.  Output to creates a single PDF file as output.  To create multiple output files you will have to use the Output to multiple times.  
Like create multiple copies of the report.  Each report filtered by a different PLANID field.  Then, in the Macro, use the Output to, PDF option for each of these reports.   The options on the action permit specific naming for each file.
