    Unanswered: Open word doc from access

    Newbie here, need some help. I am developing a database will display the name of a particular word.doc in a field. This word.doc file is located in a folder stored outside the database. When the appropriate file name is in the field I would like to be able to press a control that will open that particular word.doc with MS Word. I am fairly inexperienced with Access please "dumb it down" for me.
    Thanks, Roger

    Try the "FollowHyperlink()" method. There is an example in the help file.
