In Access VBA does anyone have an example of using a SQL statement to export data as a pdf using  ExportAsFixedFormat ?

Do you mean export the query from Access and then save as a pdf?

Hi. If that is the way to do it then yes. If there was a way to export data directly to pdf then that would have been good but if not then via word and save as pdf for example

You could always use a PDF printer and just print the report to it.

Thanks John. Is there no way to do this in Office?

You can export a REPORT to PDF.
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "YourReportName", acFormatPDF, "PathAndNameOfFile.pdf"
So you could create a report to display your data, then call it using the above syntax.
