    You can do it, but it isn't easy. You'll need to get into a visual basic module within Word, and then access the help screens. This will give you information about the many commands you'll need to control a Word document from within Access. You will probably want to buy a book on the subject that explains the various methods available with the Word libary. Do me a favor, and let me know what it's called when you find one... Otherwise, it's a lot of hunting around.
