Try wrapping the filename with the spaces in quotes like below

Print #l, """D:\test data\test try" & "\Test test.pdf"""

Open in new window


OR

Print #l, """" & "D:\test data\test try" & "\Test test.pdf" & """"

Open in new window

You need to add double quotes at the start and end
e.g.
shell """c:\test path\test file.pdf"""
