In your table, create a field for hyperlinks. Populate that field
accordingly and make it available on the approriate form.

Post the code you have used to open Word. Usually, all you need to do
is add to the documents collection of the Word object. For example,
if you used:

Dim objWord as object
Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWord.visible = True
objWord.documents.open "c:\mydirectory\myworddocument.doc"
