ACCESS 2007: Reports Form That Outputs SNP File to Specific Folder Based on Table

I have the following code in my form:
_______________________________________________

Private Sub SaveReport2_Click()
On Error GoTo SendObject_Error
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, lstReports.Column(1), acFormatSNP, lstReports.Column(3), False
SendObject_Error:
    If Err.Number = 2501 Then
       MsgBox "Action Canceled.", vbInformation, "Notice!"
   End If
End Sub
_______________________________________________
The unbound box listing my reports on the "Row Source" is a query called "qryReportsList".
The label on the unbound box is "lstReports"

This worked in 2003, but no longer works in 2007

Once the report is selected, it needs to run before it's saved because it has parameters built in. I get a save as popup window, which is not what it used to do.

Anyone have suggestions?

lstReports.Column(3)
...Does this expression (Argument) contain a valid Path and filename?

For example, this works fine for me...
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptEmployees", acFormatSNP, "c:\YourFolder\YouSnap.snp", False

Just a side note: in Access 2007 you can use acFormatPDF. It is more portable than SNP

Also note that you may need to install the snap file options when you install Access/Office
(Always choose a Full install.

Finally note that the snap format was phased out in Access 2010, so when you upgrade, you may not be able to use this format, ...
...So consider moving to the .pdf format for things like this
(Also not that an addin for PDF was required in Access 2007, ...but is included by default in 2010 and newer)
IIRC...

OK, you've convinced me on the PDF, and will adjust.

To the first question, "Does this expression (Argument) contain a valid Path and filename?", the answer is yes. The database sits in the root folder Z:\@MasterDatabase.

lstReports.Column(3) paths all point to Z:\@MasterDatabase\AccessSnapshots - to be renamed.

So I noticed that if I converted the scripts to macros, the event functioned properly. What was odd was that in 2 days the database scripts started acting up - randomly. Sometimes they would work, and sometimes they wouldn't. Since I had been in the process of "cleaning up" the scripts for a new environment and purpose, the thought occurred to me that I might have deleted something vital in the process. I created the db in 2004, so there must have been something I didn't recall that was vital.

I copied and pasted all the scripts from the old version of the db - and whalla! It works smoothly again.
