I am using the PDF reDirect VBA class module to print Microsoft Access reports. I am currently creating each new file with a sequence number. Is it possible to retrieve the sequence number assigned by PDF reDirect VBA after running the class module?

Hi,

   The sequence number might be assigned by the batch printer if you selected that feature when you setup the batch printer. If you turn that feature off, then you could create (and track) your own sequence number, which might be the easiest for you.

   But, to answer your question, the sequence number is created in a separate thread, and is not available in the VBA Class Module, but you could, after the PDF is created, list all of the files that exist, and look for the sequence number programmatically.

   Hopefully, I am being clear, but let me know if I need to expand.

Michel.

Hi Michel,

Thanks a lot. I will create my own sequence number then.

Hi,

I have created my own sequence and it works well now. However, I have a second question. My report includes the company logo and it changes from red to gray when I use the batch printer. What should I do to keep the color of the logo and fonts when using the batch printer?

Hi Henry,

   Have you checked the default printer properties? (printer properties >> Printing Preferences >> Paper/Quality tab) Is the printer set to print in color as the default? Also, make sure that in the Advanced settings, that the Image Color management (ICM) is "disabled".

   I did a quick test here, and my output showed up in Color.

Michel.

Hi Michael,

Thanks again. It seems that there is something wrong with the design of my report. I tested my code with the Northwind database and the output showed up in color. Therefore, I will have to check the design of my report but I don't quite sure where to look because it always prints in color except when using the batch printer.

Hi Michel,

Sorry I misspelled your name before. Thanks for your tip. I verify the printer properties in the actual report (Page Setup>> Printer Properties) and it was set to print in black and white. After changing it to print in color, my report shows in color.
