    Code to email Report from Form

    I had this button on a form which would generate a PDF of a report that would be saved in a specific location on my computer and then email a copy to a group of people. This works. I would like to now email a different form in PDF without saving it to my computer location and I am getting an error in the path. I tried using a Windows variable like %tmp% so it can be saved temporarily but access won't recognize this variable. Probably my code needs to be modified so i am attaching it below



    The variables used in the code are already declared Public

    Code:
    Private Sub emailTest_Click()
    
    On Error GoTo emailTest_Click_Err
    
    
        flnm = "RMA " & RMAN & " TKT " & TicketN & ".pdf"
        Sbj = "RMA# " & RMAN & " / TKT# " & TicketN
    
    
        DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "RRMAPDF", acFormatPDF, flnm, , , , 0
           
    Dim appOutLook As Outlook.Application
    Dim MailOutLook As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim MailAttachment As Outlook.Attachments
    
    
        Set appOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        Set MailOutLook = appOutLook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
        MailOutLook.Display
        With MailOutLook
            .subject = Sbj
            .To = Me.Email
            .CC = "support@domain.com"
            .Attachments.Add flnm
            .Display 'This will display the message for you to check and send yourself
    '       .Send ' This will send the message straight away
        End With
        
    emailTest_Click_Exit:
        Exit Sub
    
    
    emailTest_Click_Err:
        MsgBox Error$
        Resume emailTest_Click_Exit
        
    End Sub

    Being lazy, I'd just save it to the path you know works and then delete the file after the email is sent.
