Your "To" argument is wrong. If you want to use the value in txtEmail as the To address, then remove the quotes around it.

You have an ampersand in FRONT of your Body section:

,& "See attached.  Best Regards Leigh Transport"

You don't need the ampersand.

Also, what are your "txt" objects? Are they Textboxes on your form, or are then Fields in the form's recordset?

After making the changes above if you're still having troubles, remove the square brackets:

DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, "rptJob", acFormatPDF, txtEmail, , , "Leigh Transport From " & txtFromCity & " - " & txtToCity", "See attached.  Best Regards Leigh Transport"
