I am trying to send a report in PDF format to an established folder on computer.  The folder path is

strClientAppealsAttachmentFolderDataPath

which I know is a real path because I debug.print it.

I really don't want to preview the report, just send it to the folder.

Here is my code:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptBillOfLading", acViewPreview, , , acHidden
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptBillOfLading", acFormatPDF, strClientAppealsAttachmentFolderDataPath

Open in new window


but I get an The OutputTo action was cancelled and the report preview but I don't want it to.
