I have a MS Access report that is grouped by Location.  I would like to give the end-user the ability to push a button and the result would be that the report would be exported into multiple .pdf reports - one for each location.

Can anyone tell me how I could do this in vba?

Thanks!

Access 2007 has a free add-in from Microsoft to add a the built in ability to create a PDF. No need need for a printer drive solution.

I actually have an example I built that does exactly what you want.  

See: Batch Printing and Save As PDF
