I have the following line of code
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptFaultReport", acformatpdf, Tlocation, False

Tlocation = \\klo-fs\common\Hoist\Reports\  & “FaultReport”

Problem is I get the message report saved but when I look in the folder report it looks empty but If I open the properties dialogue box it tells me there is one file. I have no idea what goes on. Any help appreciated

Use the extension. You have saved it as FaultReport, without .pdf at the end. Your Windows Explorer is configured to not show it. Change the line to this:
Tlocation = \\klo-fs\common\Hoist\Reports\  & “FaultReport.pdf”

Open in new window

added .pdf still not showing up in the \\klo-fs\ etc so tried into a different location on the PC and it worked so looks like I have a server problem
