Possible to NOT have to open reports when sending them as an attachment in an email

Am wondering if the following code could be altered so that the reports don't have to open prior to sending them as attachments in an email.  If so, how?

    Dim appOutLook As Outlook.Application
    Dim MailOutLook As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim fileNameIncomeStatement As String, todayDateIncomeStatement As String
    Dim fileNameSalesAnalysis As String, todayDateSalesAnalysis As String
    Dim rptIncomeStatement As Object
    Dim rptSalesAnalysis As Object
    Dim FileArray As String
    Dim AttachmentFiles, aFile
    todayDateIncomeStatement = Format(Date, "MMDDYYYY")
    todayDateSalesAnalysis = Format(Date, "MMDDYYYY")
    'Email Reports...
    fileNameIncomeStatement = Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Income Statement_" & todayDateIncomeStatement & ".pdf"
    DoCmd.OutputTo acReport, "Income Statement", acFormatPDF, fileNameIncomeStatement, , , , acExportQualityPrint

    DoCmd.OpenReport "Income Statement", acViewPreview, , , acHidden
    Reports![Income Statement].Visible = False

    fileNameSalesAnalysis = Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Sales Analysis_" & todayDateSalesAnalysis & ".pdf"
    DoCmd.OutputTo acReport, "Sales Analysis", acFormatPDF, fileNameSalesAnalysis, , , , acExportQualityPrint

    DoCmd.OpenReport "Sales Analysis", acViewPreview, , , acHidden
    Reports![Sales Analysis].Visible = False

    Set appOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set MailOutLook = appOutLook.CreateItem(olMailItem)

    With MailOutLook
        .Recipients.Add Reports![Income Statement].txtEMail
        .CC = "acct@somedomain.com"
        .Subject = "Financial Statement for " & Reports![Income Statement].txtStartDate & " - " & Reports![Income Statement].txtEndDate
        .Body = "Attached are both your Income Statement and Sales Analysis.  If you have any questions please contact Susanne at someemail@somedomain.com or 123 456 7890."
        .Attachments.Add fileNameSalesAnalysis
        .Attachments.Add fileNameIncomeStatement
    End With

    DoCmd.Close acReport, "Income Statement", acSaveNo
    DoCmd.Close acReport, "Sales Analysis", acSaveNo
    'End of email Reports
