Hello. Lately, we seem to be having issues kicking off Access from an Automate script. Automate will show that the task run but we have no output from Access (usually a PDF report). If I open the task steps and run it manually, everything seems fine. But from a timer trigger, I'm getting no output.

Generally, I use a run command with variables for the database path including /x for the macro name.

Because Access can hang, I have the command set to terminate the job after so many minutes. I leave plenty of time, of course, for Access to finish before potentially terminating the process. I have the run command set to 'wait until the application completes'.

Thank you,
