Disable "Save Export Steps" dialog in Access 2010

I have code that creates a PDF from Access:

        DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, strReportName, acFormatPDF, strFileName

However, after it creates the PDF, Access opens up the "Save Export Steps" dialog. We never use this so it is just adding an unnecessary level of complexity (and confusion) every time a user creates a PDF.

Is there a way to eliminate this dialog?

I do not get the dialog to Save Export Steps when  I output to PDF.  What version of Access are you using?

Access 2010 with the latest updates. The About screen says Version 14.0.7166.5000 (32-bit)

I get the dialog both from the .accdb and the .accde versions.

Oops. My mistake. I didn't realize the code I found had a different way of processing PDF's to everything else (Word, Excel, etc.).

Thanks for the suggestion. When I put the STOP in and it never reached the STOP, I realized my error.
