Hello Experts,

I have an Access application with all menus and toolbars disabled.  However, I need to give the user to convert certain Reports to PDF.

Is there a quick way of doing this, by enabling/creating certain toolbars, or a few lines of code?

Thank you.

With all due respect, the Accepted answer is not really an answer ... it's a Question ...
