Is there a way to add a field to an Access table from Word? I have a table already created, but need to add a new field to it by using MS Word.

Will you be adding fields on a regular basis? If yes then I would recommend that you normalized the database and use new record for the new data. Adding fields often is generally an indication of a design issue.

If this is a one thine thing that see: DAO Programming Code Examples
