Hi to all, firstly, we have Adobe Acrobat 7 on two machines, I can buy more licences if required if this works. I can also get a shareware or freeware PDF writer if one will make this easier.
That I want to do is print a file as a PDF to a certain filename (embedded in the file), I then want to trigger an email to be sent with some HTML blurb around it to send the email. Is this possible? I can use Redemption for the second part, but some help on embedding commands for Acrobat if this is possible.
Your help is appreciated.

Take a look at WWW. Lebans.com's ...........'Report2PDF Demo/code.
It will convert an Access report to *.Pdf, and yes you can name/place it wherever you want on creation.
<Did I mention its also 'free'>?
IMHO, since I just get 2 1/2 cents, its worth every penny! sad.gif
Good luck, sad.gif

Here's a demo that uses Redemption and Stephen Leban's PDF Generator

to send a Report as PDF you may consider to use ac2007 and SendObject
DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, strReportName, acFormatPDF, _
"Nancy Davolio; Andrew Fuller", "Joan Weber", , _
"Current Report of Employees", , , True
For write to file
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, strReportName, acFormatPDF, "C:\temp\Report.PDF"
but I never managed to do html emails..........
