How to create and email a PDF of a single Form in MS Access instead of an entire object

I am trying to create a command button that will filter a form to only generate a PDF of the current Form and then email that PDF.  I know how to do this for the entire object. Similarly, I know how to restrict the Form users' view of other form records, which then allows you to send a PDF of just that present record. However, I want users to be able to go back and edit the forms if need be (have access to the entire Object) but also to be able to submit a PDF of just the record they are working on.

I think so. The form is to be filled out prior to committee approval, and if terms change after committee review then the user will have to edit the form to reflect the changes.

Not completely necessary. I could have them request to make a change through me, but I don't know if that's the best approach either.

ok,, so it is the record that you want the user to edit
(I thought you want the user to edit/alter the form)

let them do what they are doing now, then if there are some revision to be made,
Open the form in Edit view to edit the record.

This is an example of what I'm talking about. I can't upload the entire database for customer privacy purposes.

tblLoanInfo gives two loans
tblCollateralAddress gives the census tract numbers for the collateral properties associated with each loan
tblAssessmentArea gives the census tracts that qualify as being in our assessment area
qryCollateralAAGroupBy shows me all of the collateral properties that qualify as being in the AA
qryCollateralAAFirst shows just the first of the collateral properties that qualify as being in the AA

I want a query that shows only those where >50% of the collateral properties are in the AA, or at least what percent of properties are in the assessment area. Currently this just pulls in any loan with at least one collateral property in the assessment area.

It would be better to create a report filtered by the form's key value, and export it as a PDF.  It is generally not a good idea to print a form, either to a printer or to a PDF.

Query 3 looks to be what I'm wanting. Thanks for the assistance! I'll let you know if I have further questions.
