I am new to using reports in Access and I am trying to open the report using VBA without printing.

From searching the web the only way I can find to do this is by using:  docmd.OpenReport "Name", 'acViewPreview'. I don't want to display the report in print preview mode, just the standard report view as if I had clicked on the object manually.

"as if I had clicked on the object manually."
That is the same a Print Preview.

Normal ... will directly print the report to printer ...

I'm on 2007 and when I double click the report object it opens in a full screen and my ribbon does not change to print/preview mode.

Print preview mode splits the report into multiple pages if the column widths are too great.

Use acViewReport instead of acViewPreview
