I currently use Access to generate reports from MySQL and DB2 databases. I'm basically using Access as a reporting frontend using Pass Through queries. Is it possible to automate report generation from outside of Access, maybe through the use of an API?

I have reports that need to be generated as events take place in the database. For example: if an order comes into our DB then a pretty PDF copy of that order needs to be sent via email back to the customer.
