Hey everyone,

The object is to create a simple repository of forms that can then be queried by keywords, department, etc.

I've created a basic table with one field having an OLE Object Data Type to store the actual documents with supporting fields having the corresponding data. However, when I go to put a Word object in the field I get an error message indicating there was a problem communicating with the OLE Server or ActiveX control. Incidentally, I have Access 2003 installed but defaulting to file format 2000.

If I try to dump a bitmap image there's no problem. I get the "Package" message when I dump a text file but can't get the Word file working.

Does anyone know of an ActiveX component or .dll or....that needs to be registered/provided to support placing a Word file in an OLE Object field?

Any ideas would be appreciated.
