    Well if money isn't an issue, go straight for the source and purchase acrobat. Then you can use distiller as a print device.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Only thing I can think of is to look at getting the Adobe PDF library and try that out ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    If you have distiller, there is no vba involved with it. Distiller behaves and is accessed exactly like a printer. The only difference is instead of printing to a paper hardcopy, it prints to a pdf file.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro 6.0 has Distiller, but I believe Distiller will still prompt you for a PDF file name. I played with this a little bit and was never able to make it hands-free. It's very possible I was missing something.

    It just prints to a pdf file.

    The usage is exactly like using a physical printer.
