Hello all, I have a database that sends a report by email in pdf format automatically by pressing a button. My problem is that whilst this works perfectly on my computer, I get an error "2282 - the format in which you are attempting to output the current object is not available." on other users computers. I have checked that all the computers have Adobe Reader 8. I would be most greatful for any help on this one.

Following is the code i have behind the button

 DoCmd.OpenReport "ActionItem", acViewPreview, "", "

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you have this <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4d951911-3e7e-4ae6-b059-a2e79ed87041&displaylang=en”> </a> installed? 2282 indicates that the software probably isn’t installed. When I get 2282 I call an error handling proceedure that installs the download on this linked page.
Personally I perfer the
<pre>
DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, REPORTNAME, acFormatPDF, TOADDRESS, CCADDRESS, BCCADDRESS, Subject, Message, False
</pre>
to send an email or the
<pre>
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, REPORTNAME, acFormatPDF, PATH & FILENAME & “.pdf”, False
</pre>
if I’m goint to upload the file.
