I am creating a VB6 appliation that logs live data and inserts it into a Access table.  This database also has a main table that contains pertinanent information to the test being run.  This main table has to contain an embedded word object inserted at runtime of the VB6 application.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

What control are you using to display the Word object?  Are you creating the Word object on the fly and then storing it?  (There's a bunch more I could ask...)

You'll want to set the data type for the field on the Access table to 'OLE Object' and use the ADO '.AppendChunk' and '.GetChunk' methods to write/read the data, if your form control doesn't support OLE DB.  I might be able to be a bit more specific, if you can provide a bit more on the structure of your program.

Hope this helps,
Landy

Also, you might want to do a Search on "Access Word OLE Object" -- you'll find a lot of PAQs dealing with your issue.

I am not using any control to display the word object.  

Also I tried to use the appendchunk and getchunk methods, but they append 'Long binary Data'

What i want to do programmatically is the same as if you were to do the following while in access:

Click on an existing cell in table view whose datatype is an OLE object.

Then right-click on the cell and go down to insert object.

Hope this clears up the question

Also I don't want to create a form, I want to be able to embed this document directly into the table
