Word Automation | Microsoft Access Sample Code

Function for using Word Automation

Do you need to interact with a word document from within your Access Databse? Word Automation is a very powerful technique where you can communicate with an Word document from within VBA code in your Access Project. This allows you to do some very powerful things, such as populating an existing document with data from your database, taking advantage of Word documents you've already setup, dump data into a document and format it and wide variety of other uses. The function below shows a very simple example of how to interact with Word from within your Access Application.

The Microsoft Access Word Automation Database is a sample database that shows you how to implement Word automation inside your own Access Database.

Please note that this is a template database. If it doesn't meet your needs 100% and you're unable to customize it yourself, let us know and we'll provide a quote to develop the customizations you need to get you exactly what you want in your Access Word Automation Database System.
