Hi Everyone

20        If Me.AgentPaid = -1 Then
30            Me.PaidDate = Date

40            If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
50            MsgBox "A Copy of the PDF will be saved to the C Drive EMails Folder", vbInformation
              Dim strSQL As String
              Dim outApp As Object
              Dim outMail As Object
              Dim strReportname As String
              Dim strMailItem As String
              Dim strWhere As String
              Dim strToWhom As String
              Dim strMsg As String
              Dim strSubject As String
              Dim strPath As String

60            strToWhom = Me.AgenteMailP
70            strWhere = "[ID]=" & Me.id
80            strSubject = "Settlement"
90            strReportname = "AgentSettlement"

100           strMsg = "Find attached latest Settlement Details"
110           If Dir("C:\Emails", vbDirectory) = "" Then MkDir "C:\Emails"

120           strPath = "C:\Emails\" & strReportname & "-" & Format(Date, "mmddyyyy") & "- Agent Settlement" & [LoadNumber] & ".pdf"
      
130           Set outApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
140           Set outMail = outApp.CreateItem(0)

150           DoCmd.OpenReport "AgentSettlement", acViewPreview
160           DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "AgentSettlement", acFormatPDF, "C:\Emails\" & Format(Date, "mmddyyyy") & "- Agent Settlement" & [LoadNumber] & ".pdf", True 'True shows email before semding

170       End If
180       With outMail
190           .To = strToWhom
200           .Subject = strSubject
201           .Attachments.Add strPath
220           .Body = strMsg
230           .Display
240       End With



          
250       On Error GoTo 0
260       Exit Sub

cmdPrint_Click_Error:

270       MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ") in procedure cmdPrint_Click, line " & Erl & "."

End Sub

I am getting the following error.

strPath does not contain the file path used in OutputTo argument. Why don't you use the variable in OutputTo?

Hi June

One thing that is strange is that on running the code i get the following outputs:-

1. a Print Preview of theReport
2. a PDF file displayed in Microsoft Edge - even though my default browser is Google
3. an EMail

Any ideas why this would happen??
 
The comment at the end is not accurate, as it simply displays the newly created PDF in the default application set to open PDFs (which seems to be Edge; Docmd.OutputTo method has nothing to do with emailing, the email is being displayed by the .Display line):
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "AgentSettlement", acFormatPDF, "C:\Emails\" & Format(Date, "mmddyyyy") & "- Agent Settlement" & [LoadNumber] & ".pdf", True 'True shows email before semding

Cheers,
