I have a code that populate word documents then prints to pdf. The problem is I have to click SAVE for each one then the display of the PDF opens. Is there a way to automatically SAVE and also prevent the preview from coming up? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is the code:
Code:
Sub CreateWordDocuments()
Dim CustRow, CustCol, LastRow, TemplRow, DaysSince, FrDays, ToDays As Long
Dim DocLoc, TagName, TagValue, TemplName, FileName As String
Dim CurDt, LastAppDt As Date
Dim WordDoc, WordApp, OutApp, OutMail As Object
Dim WordContent As Word.Range
With Sheet1
  
  
  If .Range("B3").Value = Empty Then
    MsgBox "Please select a correct template from the drop down list"
    .Range("G3").Select
    Exit Sub
  End If
    TemplRow = .Range("B3").Value 'Set Template Row
    TemplName = .Range("G3").Value 'Set Template Name
    FrDays = .Range("L3").Value 'Set From Days
    ToDays = .Range("N3").Value 'Set To Days
    DocLoc = Sheet2.Range("F" & TemplRow).Value 'Word Document Filename
    
    'Open Word Template
    On Error Resume Next 'If Word is already running
    Set WordApp = GetObject("Word.Application")
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    'Launch a new instance of Word
    Err.Clear
    'On Error GoTo Error_Handler
    Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    WordApp.Visible = True 'Make the application visible to the user
    End If
    
    
    LastRow = .Range("E9999").End(xlUp).Row  'Determine Last Row in Table
        For CustRow = 8 To LastRow
                DaysSince = .Range("M" & CustRow).Value
                If TemplName <> .Range("N" & CustRow).Value And DaysSince >= FrDays And DaysSince <= ToDays Then
                                Set WordDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(FileName:=DocLoc, ReadOnly:=False) 'Open Template
                                For CustCol = 5 To 13 'Move Through 9 Columns
                                    TagName = .Cells(7, CustCol).Value 'Tag Name
                                    TagValue = .Cells(CustRow, CustCol).Value 'Tag Value
                                     With WordDoc.Content.Find
                                        .Text = TagName
                                        .Replacement.Text = TagValue
                                        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
                                        .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll 'Find & Replace all instances
                                     End With
                                Next CustCol
                        
                        If .Range("I3").Value = "PDF" Then

                                       WordDoc.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName:=FileName, ExportFormat:=wdExportFormatPDF
                        
                                       WordDoc.Close False
