Hi All,
I am looking to open a word document to a specific page from Access97 vba code. The senario is I have a form with many unbound boxes on it and each box has a page worth of help for it so, I'm thinking of using the tag properity in each control, it would be the page number of the word document that contains the help of that box. I would then have a button on the form called 'help'. When you click on this help button I would capture the tag properity of the unbound box that I just came from(screen.previouscontrol) to a varable. And this is were I'm looking for what to do next. Would I have to use the HYPERLINK? stuff to open the word document to the page number?  or SHELL? or use vba oApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")?.
How do I open a word document to a specific page in vba code?
