In Access 2010 (and with a 2007 plug-in I believe) you now have the ability to directly create PDFs from forms and reports by using the 'External Data' tab on the ribbon.  I see no macro or VBA commands to automate this.  Am I missing something?

I currently have a solution like the one posted above in place.  My current solution has dependencies on Acrobat Standard and some other DLL files.  As we upgraded to Access 2010, it stopped working properly.  Instead of troubleshooting, I was hoping to get rid of all the dependencies and have PDF functionality handed inside of Access.  Obviously Access 2010 can do it manually, but can we automate it?

This is how I do it in Access 2007 ... Just replace the parameters with your actual report name and file name including the complete file path.
