    Unanswered: how do i get a form into word while maintaing the form look

    hello
    I have a form in access I want to export a record from that form while maintaining the look of the form. If i try to export normally into a rtf, htm or xls all i get is the data in a row.

    see picture of form to see what i want to export.

    thanks

    Haven't tried to do that exactly but one thought comes to mind. If you are trying to get the look of the form but merge the data to Word, how about creating the form as a Word document separately. Make it a mail merge document and link it to your database source.

    Haven't tried to create the look of an Access form in Word but I bet you could get pretty close.
