If I wanted to create a Word Document vs. an access Report, do I need to set a reference to Microsoft Word 10.0 Object Library so those users who may not have a Microsoft Word office product can view the document? If not, please highlight what steps I need to take to make a word document viewable to users without a word office product.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

For just making Access reports visible to non-office users there's a free viewer for th e.snp (snap) format in which a report can be saved.
(http://www.microsoft.com/ACCESSDEV/ProdInfo/snapshot.htm)

For viewing a word document word, but also wordperfect and other products can be used.

That's fine, but suppose they don't have Snapshot viewer?

Then send them the link for downloading :-)
The only problem will be when people have no admin rights and thus aren't able to install the viewer.
The solution for that will be to print the report using a "pdf" printer as the Acrobat reader will be installed normally or can be used from a browser.
There's a free PDF printer at:

But when you have the Adobe software you can use that too.

Idea ?
