MS Access Form - Report from selected records and send to printer

Hi,
I have a piece of VBA code written for me which outputs selected records as pdf reports.

Is it possible to amend the code so that instead of exporting as a PDF, it will print through the default printer?

All my attempts so far just print the active object ie the form itself.
Here's what I currently have:

Private Sub Command28_Click()
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
Forms!InvoiceNoEmail.SetFocus
Dim oApp As Object
Dim oEmail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim fileName As String
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT [Account], [InvoiceNum], [EmailAddress], [Company], [Printed] FROM [ContactTotalsNoEmail] WHERE (((Contracts.SelectedPrint)=True)) ORDER BY [Account];", dbOpenDynaset)

Do While Not rst.EOF
    strRptFilter = "[InvoiceNum] = " & Chr(34) & rst![InvoiceNum] & Chr(34)
    DoCmd.PrintOut
    fileName = "C:\Scripts\NoEmail" & "\" & rst![Account] & " - " & rst![InvoiceNum] & ".pdf"
    
    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvTotalNoEmail", acFormatPDF, fileName
    rst.Edit
    rst![Printed] = "Yes"
    rst.Update
     DoEvents
     rst.MoveNext
   Loop
rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing
Forms!InvoiceNoEmail.Requery
End Sub

Open in new window


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Instead of or in addition to

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvTotalNoEmail", acFormatPDF, fileName

Use

DoCmd.OpenReport "InvTotalNoEmail", acViewNormal

To preview a report use the acViewPreview argument instead.
