I have a query in Access that pulls the data fields I need in my Word document.  How do I pass that data from Access to the Word bookmarks i have set up?  EX:  Field [Employer Name] needs to populate the Word bookmark {Employer Name}.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The simple way to do that is to use mail merge and Merge fields (not bookmarks). If you haven't tried that, you might like to know that there is a mail merge wizard which is started from the Word menu (Tools/Letters and Mailings/ Mail Merge...). You can also start it from Access (Tools/Office Links/MergeIt).

If you don't want to use the mail merge mechanism, you will have to use VBA and Office Automation. Have you used that before?

cebaker,

  I've attached a sample database which has a complete Access to Word merge interface in it. Enjoy.

  Bounce back with any questions.

Thanks to both GrahamSkin and JDettman.  The mail merge worked well.  And the sample provided helped.
