I have created a button on form to export a report and save report to specified file location, however, the file does not seem to be there after running the code.   When I Manual export the file as XPS type it works great.  What am I missing?

Private Sub cmdExportReq_Click()
On Error GoTo cmdExportReq_Click_Err
    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptRequirementMainQuestions", acFormatXPS, "Z:\Access Database Design\Requirement Documentation\RequirementMain.xps", True

cmdExportReq_Click_Exit:
    Exit Sub

cmdExportReq_Click_Err:
    MsgBox Error$
    Resume cmdExportReq_Click_Exit

End Sub

Open in new window


I have tried for True and false to display the results.  Neither seem to give me the correct results.

Works fine for me in Access 2010.  Start with the simple things.  Change the output file location to your local hard drive.

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptRequirementMainQuestions", acFormatXPS, "C:\Temp\RequirementMain.xps", True

See if that works.
