Stopping a PDF file from opening when created

I have written a program in Access VBA that creates a  PDF file from an Access report by issuing the following command:

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "Master List", acFormatPDF, strStartDir & SessionNum & "_MasterList" & ".pdf", True

When it does this, however, the PDF file opens up in a new window as soon as it is created. I would like the file to be created without opening.

How can I accomplish this.

Thank you.

Try setting the last argument to False.  Doesn't work with all apps though.
