I've got an existing report that I need to either import a word doc that contains a table or create a table in the report.  See the attachment.
I'm using Access 2003.

    Insert the Word Table into the Access Report as an OLE Object (Linked)

    - Select the The table in word.
    - Copy it
    - Open the Access Report in design View
    - Click: Edit-->Paste Special
    - Select: Microsoft Word Document
    - Select: Paste, or Paste Link, depending on your needs

    Thanks.  Had to do a little bit of changes, because it doesn't transfer "exactly" but it did work.
