auto set printer copycount

Expert 100+
P: 1,221
I've been printing x copies of a pdf by looping x times and calling the .PrintPages method of an Acrobat object. I'd like to call .PrintPages 1 time and let the printer itself handle the multiple copies. The code below is not working; I still get one copy no matter what. Can anyone tell me where my problem is?

I'm also getting only one copy of the Access report that is printing prior to each pdf print.


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim prtDefault As Printer ' Object
  2. For Each prtDefault In Application.Printers
  3.     If prtDefault.DeviceName = strSelectedPrinter Then
  4.         Exit For
  5.     Else
  6.     End If
  7. Next
  8. Set Printer = prtDefault
  9. Printer.Copies = rs![Number_Printed]
  10.             prtDefault.Copies = rs![Number_Printed] ' set the printer copy count to# of copies we need of this pdf
  11.              DoCmd.OpenReport strSelectedBuckSlipReport, acViewNormal, , "[T & C_Printed]='" & rs![T & C_Printed] & "'"
  13. bOK = AcroExchAVDoc.PrintPages(0, intNumPages - 1, 3, False, False)
  15.       End If
