Edit pdf document

P: n/a

What I want to do is to be able to convert an access report to a
pdf-format -which is editable - then e-mail it (but most importantly
edit it). The report, containing checkboxes, is to be sent to someone,
then some these boxes are to be checked/unchecked, then resent to
another guy. I was hoping this would be doable using the drop down
menu (Adobe PDF ).

Is this even possible? Or do I need to use word - or do it manually
outside the access application (designing the report in adobe designer
or something). Have adobe proff 7.0 installed.

Appreciate any help

Put two sets of checkboxes on the form that opens two reports from two
command buttons. The first set of values are bound to the form's
RecordSource. The second set of values are unbound and copy the first
set's values using the OnCurrent event. To refresh the copy of the
bound checkbox values have a command button rerun the OnCurrent event.
Each report refers to one of the sets of checkboxes on the form instead
of getting them from the report's RecordSource. Append the bound or
unbound values to a table if you need a history of what got sent. Then
convert the Access reports to PDF in the usual way. Then email from
Access in the usual way.
