How would you display an OLEObject from Access 2007 into an Access generated report? The documents that are being stores as OLEObjects are WordPad Documents and Images. So, what would be the best method to display these various records from the database? I am  specifically trying to have these ojects printed below a general header and these OLEObjects would be various in length and could span more than one page, sue to some of them being WordPad Documents

If your stored docs have multiple pages then I don't believe there is any way to do what you ask.  You can only manipulate the whole document in its source application.

The OLEObjects types that are in the Access DB are WordPad and Images. If I try to just use the wizad to output the report, I end up with a portion of the OLEObject appearing and the rest of it cut off due to the textbox not being long enough to hold it. this is as far as I can get it, and I was wondering if there was a way to get around this limitation?

I don't know of any way but I suggest you hang on for a while to see if there's another response.

hittabusta420,

Set the "SizeMode" of the OLE filed in the report to: Zoom

BTW:
Get ready for some heavy bloating (Size increases) of your database.
Even if you "Link" the OLE Objects, a great deal of bloating still occurs.
