My thought is that Access must use the DoCmd.OpenReport method, which is an unfortunate situation.
Option 1: Create an instance of MS Access as a background task and execute the method of that object.
Option 2: Create an instance of MS Access as a background task, have it print the report to a *.snp file, close it, and use the Access snapshot viewer to view the Access report.
