OutputTo acreport crashes access when filtered

P: 94
I need to only print one page of a report, not the whole thing, but do so automatically. Annoyingly, I can't seem to get it to work!


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptmouldcurrent", acFormatPDF, "C:\Temp\Test.pdf", False
works ok, but prints out all reports, not just the one I want.

So, I tired this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.OpenReport "rptmouldcurrent", acViewPreview, , "[Mouldref]='" & Me.CboxMould & "'", acWindowNormal
  3. DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptmouldcurrent", acFormatPDF, "C:\Temp\Test.pdf", False
  5. DoCmd.Close acReport, "rptmouldcurrent"
But this causes Access to crash catastrophically.
Any ideas why its happy to deal with lots of reports, but just one flummoxes it?

at which line is it crashing?
place a STOP command at the begining of the procedure, once the code enters debug mode, [F8] to step thru the code till error.

>>Edit>> Also move your Where String out of the function and build it first. This way we can troubleshoot it.

  1. Dim strSQL As String
  2. strSQL = "[Mouldref]='" & Me.CboxMould & "'"
  3. DoCmd.OpenReport ReportName:="rptmouldcurrent", View:=acViewPreview, WhereCondition:=strSQL, WindowMode:=acWindowNormal
I don't think you'll need the "[]"

I'm not sure at which point the code crashes, it doesn't enter debug mode, Access stops working, and needs to be shutdown.

It would be much simpler to sort if it crashed normally!

that's fine

please do as I suggested with the stop command, this forces debug mode at that point.

I cannot help you, nor can anyone else, if you ignore our requests.
