How to generate pdf files in MS Access 2007 in "silent mode"

Hi,

I am using Access to generated reports in pdf files, but when it generates it keeps poping up the generation itself. Is there a possibility to hide this from the user experience?

Right now I have the following:
    DoCmd.OpenReport ReportName, acViewDesign
    Reports(ReportName).Filter = strFilter
    DoCmd.Close acReport, ReportName, acSaveYes
   
    DoCmd.OpenReport ReportName, acViewPreview, , strFilter
    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "", acFormatPDF, Path & "\" & FileName, False
    DoCmd.Close acReport, ReportName

Thank you in advance.

get rid of the ", False"

just use :
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "", acFormatPDF, Path & "\" & FileName

Hi,

You might try turning off the screen during the procedure.

DoCmd.Echo False

   run your print process...

DoCmd.Echo True
  me.repaint  <-If you're calling from a form.

Regards,

Bill
