As far as i'm aware you don't use DAO for creating word documents - this is for creating links to databases such as MS Access.

To create a new document through code you need to include a reference to the Microsoft Word Object Library - the precise version you'll use depends on what version of Office/Word you have.   On mine it's version 9 (Office 2000).

You can then create the document by going:

Dim objWordApp As New Word.Application
Dim objNewDocument As Document

Set objNewDocument = objWordApp.Documents.Add

You can then manipulate the document using the objNewDocument object that has been defined.

Hope this helps.

I know i have a reference to word 8 library

 The problem is that in the word 8 library the object document have the same name that a object document in DAO library and i need to use both.

 The problem still been that there is a conflict (I Think) with the document object in DAO libary with the document object (same name) in word 8 library.

Thanks

You should be able to resolve this by simply prefixing the object type with the library name.

For example,

Dim myDAODocument As DAO.Document creates DAO Document
Dim myWordDocument As Word.Document creates Word Document.

Hope this helps.
