Export a Report from Access to a Word Document

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how to export a customer report to a Microsoft Word document using a Report, the OutputTo command, and two lines of VBA code.

Tricia from Flint, Michigan (a Platinum Member) asks: Is there any way I can export the information in a customer's file to a Word document? I know you can create reports in Access, but my boss wants us to save each customer's info in a Word doc that can be easily edited and emailed without having to use the database, but I also want to keep all of the rich text formatting I have in my database. Additionally, if there's a way to put the customer's picture in the Word document, that would be awesome.


Members will learn how to dynamically create a Word document using VBA. This will allow us to take direct control of each object that goes into the document, formatting (including the formatted rich text from Access), and we can insert pictures and change their attributes.
