Hi all

Just a quick problem

I can import a word document in an access form and show it aas an icon. But now i am stuck.

I can't open the embedded word document. How do i do it. Using a command button or similar?

Thanks for your help.

I have done this before - I had the document contained in a bound object frame and then the Auto Activate property of that object frame to double-click. This was in Access 97, if you have any more problems then post back and I will see what I can do.
