    Access 2013: How can I populate a word document with data from a query?

    ACCESS 2013
    I know that this can be accomplished through word merge, however it seems that the customization that comes with that is limited. I would like to be able to manipulate each field of the query into somewhat of a template on word. For example if I had a table of [Project], [Date], [Description], then the word document would be set up like this:


    [Project] [Date]
    [Description]
    Where the description is just a short paragraph. Then, this format would be used for all records in the query.
    Thanks!

    That seems like it does what I want it to, but do you know how I might achieve this through VBA rather than doing it manually? The idea here is to automate the process as much as possible because eventually this data will be used for project proposals and employee resumes.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
