change caption of DoCmd.OutputTo dialog box

I am using DoCmd.OutputTo to allow users to save Access reports in
snapshot format or other desired formats. Once the user selects the
desired format and clicks "OK", a dialog box appears that informs the
user of the progress ("Now outputting page X of...to the file...")
This is fine. However, the title of the dialog box is "Printing",
which is misleading since the user isn't actually printing but rather
is saving data to a file. Is there a way to manipulate the title of
this dialog box? None of the available parameters for the
DoCmd.OutputTo command seem to allow you to do this. Thanks in
