I have a line of code in an Access 2003 .mdb that opens a report that outputs a file (note: the report is set to a printer that prints to a local port set to a file name).  The very next line of code uses the WScript.Shell Object to run a DOS command to rename that file.  It looks like the program sometimes tries to rename the file before the report is finished creating the file.  Is there a way to halt execution of the next line of code until the report is finished outputting the file?
