Open filtered report and save it as pdf

Open filtered report and save it as pdf

Hello I have a form with btnReport
A report called rptCar

The unique I'd is CarId

Can someone help me with code to open the report to the current record that I am on and then save the report to my temp folder on my c drive as a pdf. In the process the PDFs should be named CarReport and the id number. Ie. CarReport1232

My efforts so far do not result in the report filtering. Thanks for any help. Mark.

RE: Open filtered report and save it as pdf

If you open the report first there should be no issue in getting the filtered report. If you try to directly output it without opening you will need to change the sql of the report query first.

CODE -->

Public Sub ExportToPDF()
  Const strDir = "C:\"
  Const rptName = "rptCar"
  dim CarID as long
  carID = Me.carID
  DoCmd.OpenReport rptName, acViewPreview, , "CarID = " & CarID
  DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, rptName, acFormatPDF, strDir & "CarReport" & CarID & ".pdf"
  DoCmd.Close acReport, rptName
End Sub
