Didn't get an answer in the other newsgroup. This word merge might not be possib

P: n/a
I have never did a word merge from access, However reading through these
threads I think has confused me. Posted on Microsoft Access site, No answer,
so Im thinking might not be able to do it.

However, I wrote a resume database for a buddy of mine that is unemployed.
I have a form based on a querry that he uses. Made it easy for him because
all of his past employers. bullets that go in his resume and also education
are setting in tables. Thats not the problem, just giving a basic idea how
the database is layed out. I keep reading about templates and bookmarks in
these threads.
However, This is what I would like to do.

Place a command button on his form based on a querry that saves the word.doc
to lets say
C:\Resume\*.doc I would however like to use a field called
CompanyAppliedTo as the save. If the field returns Burger King, then the
file would be saved as
C:\resume\Burger king.doc

I have never done this before in an access database. Could someone explain
the process to me and the best way to go about doing it or an URL that I can
read about and figure it out. Using MS Access 2003. Expecially any
coding that would be required. Thanks for the help, These threads can be a
life saver.
