you create a query joining  the two table using a common field

select table1.* , table2.*
from table1
inner join table2
on table1.ID=table2.ID

I like to use doc properties for the data in the main table, and TypeText into a Word table for the "many" records.  This allows expansion for as many rows as are needed, for example an invoice with order details.  See my Access Archon #44  for a discussion of this method, and a sample database.  Here is a link for downloading it (note that the sample database is in Access 97 format, so you may have to upgrade it):

And here is screen shot of the Word document produced by it:
