    Location of Access.pdf report filename (2000)

    I am trying to find out where Access is getting the .pdf report name for some of it's reports.

    For most of them the standard .pdf report name is "Test Report" but on some occurances it comes up with another name , see screenshot.
    I am bemused as to where it is getting this name from?

    Any ideas?

    Justin.

    When exporting a report to another file format, Access always uses the name of the report. If the name in your screenshot is not the name of the report, could it be the Caption property, as set in the Format tab of the Properties window?

    In the attached screenshot, a report named rptOrders is open in design view. In the Properties window (the window with the blue title bar in the screenshot), the Caption property is set to Orders.

    That is exactly what l am looking for Hans.

    That will save me an awful lot of time from typing the report in.

    Many many thanks once again.
    Justin.
