do you have adobe professional installed in the machine where you are running the Access application?
do you have Ms Access 2003 installed in the computer?

Access 2003 did not have any native support for creating PDF's.

You have to have a third party application installed to do this.
I will presume this is your situation, based on your question.

If so, then before we consider email issues, can you tell us if you can create PDF reports from MS Access Reports at all.

Can you email standard Access Reports?

hi Boaq,

well what we have to do is generate a report on Access and then file > print to PDF this then convert the file to pdf format.

we have ADOBE PROFESSIONAL installed on server

...Then your first call should be to Adobe if you want this to work like it does on the server.

Or are you asking how to simulate something like this in Access?
If so, then please list the explicit step you would like this functionality to have.
