Access 2007 error 2950, even in trusted area

I call an Access 2007 macro with a shell command from VB6.
The macro runs fine until end when it calls a vba code module, and produces error 2950 ( 2950 is supposed to be because DB is in untrusted path).

I went into Access, and added this server folder as trusted location.

The code module that results in error 2950 is:

Function WorkPeriodHoursReport()
Dim i As Integer
On Error Resume Next
Kill "C:\RWH2\" & "MyReport" & ".pdf"
  DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "WorkPeriodHoursReport", acFormatPDF, "C:\RWH2\" & "MyReport" & ".pdf", False

'Method 1
Application.FollowHyperlink ("C:\RWH2\MyReport.pdf")

'or Method 2
Dim MyShell As Variant
'MyShell = Shell("C:\RWH2\printPDF.bat", vbMinimizedNoFocus)
End Function

Funny thing is that it worked in past!

Need fix fast for client - 500 points!
Any fix appreciated!

I did set enable all macros.  Also added Q:\ drive as trusted area.
Doesn't work.

Thanks for input!!

If I "OutputTO" a blank report first, it works!
Strange.

I gave the expert 100 points for a single reply.
Although didn't fix, I ap[preciated efforts.

If moderator wants to give him all 500 points, ok.
Whatever is fair.

Other solution didn't work.  Somehow OutputTO a report that's blank first worked.
