Export Text to Word, but need special characters like Bold / Underline passed as well how?

P: n/a
I have some regular text I export to a word document. I build this in
VBA in Access and want dump it into word.

I can do this, but would like to know how I can turn on an off bolding
or underlining using special characters or combinations of these.

Is this possible to build this in with my text string that is put into
a word document? Where can I get a list of
these types of special characters.
I have a large string I put into a bookmark. This string is very
dynamic and would be very difficult to put into multiple bookmarks that
already have the stye on that bookmark.

I just want to add these styles as needed to my string by turning them
on and off?

Thanks,

Rog

Word can open HTML documents, so you could always write your text to a
temporary .htm file with <b>bold</band whatnot and then tell Word to
open it.
