Something along these lines:
Dim accessApp As Access.Application = CreateObject("Access.Application")
accessApp.OpenCurrentDatabase("path to your access file"", True)
accessApp.visible = True
accessApp.DoCmd.OpenReport("your report name", Access.AcView.acViewPreview)
accessApp.Quit()

Open in new window

You would need to either use OLE automation or create a macro that prints the report and then closes the database.  You could then just shell out to run Access with the macro name as an argument.
