PDFWriter

Is there a way to interact with the PDFWriter though Javascript?

I can invoke the "Print Dialogue" box, but from then on, it's up to
the user to select the PDFWriter printer and enter the filename to
save to PDF.

Even if I have to step out of the sandbox, it'd be fine (it's an
intranet HTML/JS app). Any other way to accomplish the same?

Thanks!

The Writer version supports Automation.. ActiveXObject.
Thanks!

Access XP WinXP Adobe Acrobat 5.0 I'm playing with Keri Hardwick's "Save a report's output as a PDF file" and most of it still works.

What appears to be going on is that the PDFWriter is not...

I'm finding working with PrtDevMode a nightmare. Is there any particular reason that Microsoft didn't simply provide a PrinterName argument for printing a report? That seems like a pretty substantial omission. Perhaps I'm overlooking a reasonable argument for them not adding that? Your comments welcomed. Randy Harris (lazy programmer)

I used to be able to create PDFs, automatically save them to a file, and mail them out to people. This was on Access 97 with Windows NT. We've changed to Windows XP and Access 2003. Doesn't work anymore. Part of the problem is that the users have no access to the registry and can only save files on the C:\ drive to their My Documents folder....
