About the ebook
Access report features only go so far. If you want to create elaborately formatted documents filled with Access data then you have to work with Word.
Helen Feddema, editor of Access Watch, shows you many different ways to put your Access data into Word documents.
There are four main methods of getting Access data into Word documents, Access Archon: Working with Word goes through all four of them discussing the advantages and disadvantages.
Separate chapters describe how to create Word documents filled with Access data using Word document properties, bookmarks, the TypeText method, or mail merge.
There is also a discussion of using Word form fields (or, for Word 2007, content controls) to allow users to entry additional data into documents produced from Access.
There’s even the possibility of user entry of more data on-the-fly, and especially if you want to produce separate documents to save in folders on your computer, the best method is to create Word documents from templates in VBA code, and fill them with data from Access.
Finally, Helen gives tips on debugging your VBA code.
The ebook comes with detailed examples, sample databases with working code and Word templates ready for you to use in your own projects. Supplied files come in Office 2007 (.accdb/.dotx) and Office 2003/XP (.mdb/.dot) formats.
