I'm using this to save an OLE Word document as a pdf;

Code:
Dim appWord As Object
If ActiveWorkbook Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
DestFolder = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\Toolbox Files"
Set wsActive = ActiveSheet
lCnt = 0
Sheets("Setup").Activate
Set ws = Sheets("Setup")
ActiveSheet.OLEObjects("Object 2").Select
ActiveSheet.OLEObjects("Object 2").Verb xlVerbPrimary
Set oDoc = ActiveSheet.OLEObjects("Object 2").Object
If appWord Is Nothing Then
Set appWord = oDoc.Parent
End If
oDoc.Bookmarks("IN").Range.InsertAfter H2Frm.ComboI.Value
oDoc.Bookmarks("DA").Range.InsertAfter H2Frm.TextDate.Value & " " & H2Frm.TextTime.Value & " hrs"
oDoc.Bookmarks("RM").Range.InsertAfter H2Frm.TextRM.Value
strFile = "H2 - RM number " & H2Frm.TextRM.Value & ".pdf"
oDoc.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Path & "\Toolbox Files\" & strFile, FileFormat:=17
oDoc.Close savechanges:=False
lCnt = lCnt + 1
If Not appWord Is Nothing Then
appWord.Quit
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized

What I need to do though is open it after saving - can anyone show me how please?

Instead of using the SaveAs method of the Document object, try using the ExportAsFixedFormat method of the Document object, and set the OpenAfterExport argument to True.

Hope this helps!
