Hello everyone,

I have a monthly report I export as a PDF and email it to some ppl. It is a huge report and I am trying to export the report in a Ledger paper size, but I can't get this done. I would like your help on this,if possible.

This is the VBA code I have so far

Code:
Public Function EmailLastMonthScrapReport()   
     
    On Local Error GoTo Some_Err
  
    Dim MyDB As Database
    Dim MyRS As Recordset
    Dim MyRpt As Recordset
    Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim objOutlookMsg As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim objOutlookRecip As Outlook.Recipient
    Dim objOutlookAttach As Outlook.Attachment
    Dim TheAddress As String
    Dim RecordID As String
    Dim lstRptName As String
    Dim strDir As String
    Dim strFile As String
    Dim AttachmentPath As String
    Dim blSkip As Boolean
    Dim strAddress As String
    Dim MyPosn As Integer
    Dim strLen As Integer
    Dim MultiEmailFlag As Boolean
    
    
    
    ' Create the Outlook session to allow creating the emails
    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")


    'Open Report to allow it to be filtered
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptNewScrapDetReport", acViewPreview
    Reports("rptNewScrapDetReport").Printer.PaperSize = acPRPSLedger


    
    ' Set directories and file names for file archiving and storage
    ' Directory to place the PDF files that are to be printed
    strDir = "Y:\Scrap Analysis\zz Auto Reports Monthly\"
    ' Name of file to create
    strFile = Format(Date - 28, "YYYY") & " " & Format(Date - 28, "mmmm") & ".pdf"
    AttachmentPath = strDir & strFile


    ' CREATE PDF REPORT HERE
    Dim blRet As Boolean
    blRet = ConvertReportToPDF("rptNewScrapDetReport", vbNullString, _
    strDir & strFile, False, True, 150, "", "", 0, 0, 0)


    'Close Report to allow it to be filtered
 'End With
    DoCmd.Close acReport, "rptNewScrapDetReport"
        
    ' Create the e-mail message.
    Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)


    With objOutlookMsg
        ' Add the To recipients to the e-mail message.
        Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add("xxx@xxx.com")
        objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo
        Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add("xxx@xxx.com")
       
        
        ' Set the Subject, the Body, and the Importance of the e-mail message.
        .Importance = olImportanceHigh  'High importance
        .Subject = "Scrap Report for " & Format(Date - 28, "mmmm") & " " & Format(Date - 28, "YYYY")
'        .Body = "Attached is..."
'        .Body = .Body & " ..."
'        .Body = .Body & Chr(13)
'        .Body = .Body & Chr(13)
        
        'Add the attachment to the e-mail message.
        If Not IsMissing(AttachmentPath) Then
            Set objOutlookAttach = .Attachments.Add(AttachmentPath)
        End If
             
        ' Resolve the name of each Recipient.
        For Each objOutlookRecip In .Recipients
        objOutlookRecip.Resolve
        If Not objOutlookRecip.Resolve Then
            objOutlookMsg.Display
        End If
        Next
                      
                      
        ' If we have a valid email address for that supplier, then send message, otherwise,
        ' add in info for me to know we're missing something.
        If (IsNull(objOutlookRecip)) Then
            MsgBox ("No valid email address")
        Else
            .Send
        End If
    End With




' All done.  Clean up
   Set objOutlookMsg = Nothing
   Set objOutlook = Nothing


Some_Err:
  'MousePointer = 0
'  MsgBox "Error (" & CStr(Err.Number) & ") " & Err.Description, _
'  vbExclamation, "Error!"


Err_EmailLastMonthScrapReport:
'    MsgBox Err.Description
'    Resume EmailScorecards_Click


    
End Function

your code calls a function named ConvertReportToPDF(). What is that function? How does it work?

Yes It calls another function stored in another Module.

Code:
Public Function ConvertReportToPDF( _Optional RptName As String = "", _
Optional SnapshotName As String = "", _
Optional OutputPDFname As String = "", _
Optional ShowSaveFileDialog As Boolean = False, _

Optional CompressionLevel As Long = 0, _
Optional PasswordOpen As String = "", _
Optional PasswordOwner As String = "", _
Optional PasswordRestrictions As Long = 0, _
Optional PDFNoFontEmbedding As Long = 0, _
Optional PDFUnicodeFlags As Long = 0 _
) As Boolean




' RptName is the name of a report contained within this MDB
' SnapshotName is the name of an existing Snapshot file
' OutputPDFname is the name you select for the output PDF file
' ShowSaveFileDialog is a boolean param to specify whether or not to display
' the standard windows File Dialog window to select an exisiting Snapshot file
' default process of embedding all fonts in the output PDF. If you are
' using ONLY - any of the standard Windows fonts

'independent whether they're embedded or not.

I don't see anything that would suggest paper size is an option with this method of conversion to pdf.
