Export Report PDFCreator by loop

Hello everybody:

I am using the next macro to print automatically one report for diferents suppliers:

Sub ReportPrint 

     Set soc = ActiveDocument.Fields("Supplier Description") 

     Set socPossible = soc.GetPossibleValues 

     For i = 0 to socPossible.Count-1 

          soc.Select socPossible.Item(i).Text 


          ActiveDocument.PrintDocReport "RP05", "PDFCreator" 


End Sub 

The macro works very good, but I would like to complete it, inserting the name of every pdf automatically with the combination of three fields: "Supplier Description";"Year" and the Last "Month".

Thanks in advance.

Re: Export Report PDFCreator by loop

Hi Iñigo,

You can create an object type PDFCreator and configure the PDF filename like this:

- Get the field values for "Year" and the Last "Month" as you are already doing for "Supplier Description"

- Create a string variable for the report filename (ex. Dim sPDFName) and stuff it with the desired field values (ex. sPDFName = ReportName & " - " & FieldValue)

- In the PDF object type, configure the  item  .cOption("AutosaveFilename") = sPDFName

Like the code below:

Set pdfjob = CreateObject("PDFCreator.clsPDFCreator")

With pdfjob

      If .cStart("/NoProcessingAtStartup") = False Then

         If .cStart("/NoProcessingAtStartup", True) = False Then

               Exit Sub

         End if

         .cVisible = True

      End If

      .cOption("UseAutosave") = 1

      .cOption("UseAutosaveDirectory") = 1

      .cOption("AutosaveDirectory") = sPDFPath

      .cOption("AutosaveFilename") = sPDFName

      .cOption("AutosaveFormat") = 0 ' 0 = PDF


    End With
