    Unanswered: Exporting to MS Word

    I have a form called Name_Index and a MS Word Doc by the name of information.doc. I want to push a command button to export the information in the text box called city from the form to the word doc in a bookmark called city. I am using access 2003 and word 2003. What code would I use? I want to be able to save the document for further editing and printing. I would appreciate any information I could get.

    Greets;

    You can either export as a just general word file containing all your records, or you can merge with word.

    Either way, if you have the data viewable (either in table or from a report) you can use the in-build functions to then export to word, it is more or less a synch.

    If you have a more specific enquiry about what exactly you need, post back and I'll see what i can do.

    My database contains 11k names and information. My jobs uses this information and what I was wanting to do is push a command button and have specific fields such as the name, address, DOB, SS#, and other information to trasnfer over to a form in ms word into the fields I have setup with bookmarks. I dont need all the information in my form just certain fields.

    Have a look at the attached sample, it only uses 1 bookmark to insert customer name and address details into a word document.

    Make sure that you read the "readme" before you run the access program.

    Any questions post back.
