Is there a way to get a list of the fields in a table into Word

P: n/a
How can I get a list of the fields in an Access table into Word? I am
working on a very misdesigned database where one table has over 100 fields
and several others have over 50 fields. I am writing a report in Word and
want to include the list of fields in certain tables. I am aware of the
documenter; is there a way to get a documenter report into Word?

Thanks!

Run the Documenter.
Go To Tools, Office Links, and select Publish It With Microsoft Word.

John,

Thanks for the quick response! The documenter gives me field name, suze and
type so I get three columns in Word. I could clean it up so I only have the
field name but that would be a bit tedious. Any idea how to just get the
field names?

Thanks!

Go to Options in the documenter, and select only Field Names, Data
Types and Sizes. That's about the minimum.
