Microsoft Access - report to pdf, A2007
Asked By chaz on 19-Mar-12 12:00 PM
Inherited a model 2000 db. It sends reports to pdf, and all is sweetness and light in that regard - except: sometimes it hangs.
Among my tasks is to trim the fat and modernize the procedure if doing so would provide additional stablity and efficiency.
A cursory review of google on this topic suggests that it was a dark art until A2007, when apparently sending a report to pdf was something that MS decided it should support with 21st century methods.
The whole thing appears very acrane to me, being uninitiated as I am in the deeper secrets of ancient versions of Access, and it appears to be a fragile, capricious process.
Can someone please post or lead me to an overview of the process then and now? Also, any caveats that should be heeded would be very helpful.
