    freebie way is to search the internet for PDF995 which installs as a "printer".

    alternatively, use .SNP format - the reader is free to anyone and is many many many times faster than Acrobat.
    the .SNP format is also more compact than .PDF for the same Access report.

    Depends on the version of Access you are using. Access 2007/2010 have the built in ability to save a report as a PDF.

    For Access 2003 and prior I recommend PrimoPDF - Free PDF creation printer driver

    Thanks, Coach.

    I really cannot get used to using Access 2007 and still use 2003.

    For ther time being, it looks like i will have to save hard copies for my files.

    Now....where can I buy the cheapest, large storage cabinet

    It took me about a day to lean the new Access 21007 Ribbon. When I have to work in 2003, I miss it.

    This may help with the transition: Interactive: Access 2003 to Access 2007 command reference guide
