Hi

Hope you can help me, as I can’t seem to find the answer on-line anywhere.

I currently have a FORM, where I based on a chosen Item number, open a REPORT (based on a QUERY) and safes the REPORT with a prefixed file name, made up of Item number + standard text, as a pdf file.

The VBA in the FORM goes like this:

Private Sub Save_Report_Click()
Dim Item number As String
Item number = Me.Item number

DoCmd.OpenReport "REPORT data sheet page 2", acViewReport
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, " REPORT data sheet page 2", acFormatPDF, "C:\Data sheets\" & Item number & "_data sheet MG.pdf"
DoCmd.Close acReport, " REPORT data sheet page 2"
DoCmd.Close acForm, "FORM_data sheet", acSavePrompt

End Sub

This currently works perfect, as the QUERY only contains one line with the needed item number and all fields for the report.

BUT I also have a QUERY containing several item numbers / lines, and here I would like to set up a FORM that opens the REPORT, and for each item number/ line in the QUERY, safes a separate file in accordance with the above.

So far I've gotten a REPORT containing ALL the lines/ item numbers. But I need to have several separate pdf files, each saved under correct file name.

I’m aware that I probably need some kind of COUNTER, and a DO LOOP sequence, but can’t figure it out…

Hope you guys can help.

Generating Multiple Copies of the Same report with different Criteria

>>> This currently works perfect <<<

No it doesn't ...

Dim Item number As String
Item number = Me.Item number

that don't work for a start...

Please explain? I'm thinking if thats wrong what else is?

Not a good start...

Hi
Thanks a lot for you fast reply.
I get your point, I’m pretty new to Access, learning by trial and error, but your right, I didn’t get the full coding in place. Will be done in the future.

But having tried your code, (currently set up as your test) I get all the way to the Msgbox, but then nothing happens. The report stays visible, and no pdf files are saved.

So what have I missed?

Please see coding below:


Code:
Public Sub fRSL_MakeRptWithNumbers_Click()
 
Dim StrSubName As String
Dim strModuleName As String

StrSubName = "fRSL_MakeRptWithNumbers"
strModuleName = "basConstants"


Dim curdb As dao.Database
Dim rsrptnumb As dao.Recordset

Set curdb = CurrentDb

Dim strsql_rsl As String
strsql_rsl = "select tblrptnumbers.ID, tblrptnumbers.fieldrptnumb from tblrptnumbers order by tblrptnumbers.fieldrptnumb"

Dim txtfieldrptnumb As String
Dim strrptname As String
Dim strprefix As String
Dim strsufix As String
Dim strurl As String

strrptname = "REPORT data sheet page 2"
strprefix = "C:\A_Transfer\"
strsufix = " data sheet MG.pdf"

Set rsrptnumb = curdb.OpenRecordset(strsql_rsl, dbOpenForwardOnly)

Do Until rsrptnumb.EOF
txtfieldrptnumb = rsrptnumb!fieldRPTNumb

DoCmd.OpenReport strrptname, acViewReport
strurl = strprefix & txtfieldrptnumb & strsufix
MsgBox " >>> " & strurl
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, strrptname, acFormatPDF, strurl
DoCmd.Close acReport, strrptname

rsrptnumb.MoveNext
Loop


End Sub

The message box displayes the correct text, but on clicking OK-button,
nothing happens, and the REPORT stays visibel.....

I must have missed something?

Set a breakpoint in your code and see if you can identify exactly where the issue is happening

Hi

It seems to run fine, until the message box.

#
DoCmd.OpenReport strrptname, acViewReport
strurl = strprefix & txtfieldrptnumb & strsufix
MsgBox " >>> " & strurl
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, strrptname, acFormatPDF, strurl
DoCmd.Close acReport, strrptname

rsrptnumb.MoveNext
Loop
#

But it dosen't close the report or save it.

Also I've noticed, that the report contains ALL the item numbers? It should only contain, one number at a time. As the reports are suppose to be per item number?
See attached test screen shoot of report.

This might be the problem....

I didn't have your Report, I used my own report, a report with no code in it.

So you are doing something else to your report.

Create a simple report, name it:- "REPORT data sheet page 2" and the code will work.

Hi

Your so right. It does save the reports with a "clean" report.
I'll figure out a solution to the "real" report later.

But as I suspected, it saves the full amount of record numbers in each report, and does not seperate them, so that each report only contains the information from one record... in accordance with the report file name.
(see attached)
I need the seperation, so that each report only contains one record number.

Also I have to click the "OK" button for each record in the table, and I'll have up to several 100 records in final table, so I would really like not to do all the clicking...
Any ideas?

Hi
I removed the msgbox, so now it works without the clicking.
Then there is just the issue of record numbers in the reports.

Can you show the code that Currently changes the record numbers in your reports?

Hi

There currently is no code that changes record numbers in the report.

I had a report and attached form which worked by running a query choosing a specific record number, and saving the report with the information for this specific record number, with the record number etc in filename.

What I need now is for the form/report to work with a tabel holding several record numbers, instead of only one.
So now I have the tabel holding several records id's, and I need the form to "pick" a record id at a time and save the specific record id in the report layout, with the record number etc. in filename.

So far I'm still where I can get it to run, but all record id's are saved in each and every file. Although I do get the different files saved with correct filenames.

What I was looking for was the counter / do loop to happen in the form, so that just one record id at at time was choosen, the report completed and saved with record id name in filename.

Please show the SQL of this query...

OK

Is report is based on the query which is bassicaly - Select "different fields" from "different tabels" where [Item number] = [chosen item number]

The form then opens the report (which runs the query) and saves the report with the choosen record number etc.

As I said this works fine, as long as we're talking ONE record id.


Query SQL:

Code:
SELECT VS_ML_20_Imagetabel_billede_T.ImagePath1, VS_ML_21_Imagetabel_symbol_T.ImagePath2, AX_03_Data_Vare_T.ABC, VS_ML_02_levopl_og_productsafetyopl_T.[ML_PS-ans], AX_03_Data_Vare_T.[Item number] AS

Is item number the number that needs to change for each report?

NOTE:
I currently not trying to make my own query/report/form work.
Currently I'm only using the set up of tabel/form/report you setup, and it is there that the reports are still all together.

(although it does work on my own stuff with same result)

Yes. Item number is the id for all other fields (all linked to this ID)
When the query runs, I choose a item number in the pop up window.
