Dear Experts.

From Access I to be able to export data in a string into a word document.

The String is below, what it does is create “blocks” of 25 email addresses (with a semi colon separating each).  I would like these blocks to be pasted into a word document separate by a line break i.e.

Emails 1-25

Emails 26 -50
Etc etc

Can anybody help?
 
Dim rst As Recordset
    Dim BccList As String, x As Integer
    Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("AfricanMembersLive")
    Do While Not rst.EOF
    BccList = ""
    x = 1
   Do Until rst.EOF Or x >= 25
     BccList = BccList & rst!email & "; "
    x = x + 1
    rst.MoveNext
   Loop

Private Sub Command0_Click()

'Dim strpath As String

'strpath = "c:\temp.doc" ' enter your document name here or use

'Set doc = objWord.Documents.Open(strpath)


'or
Dim objWord As Object
Dim doc As Object
Set objWord = CreateObject(“Word.Application”)

Set doc = objWord.Documents.Open(“C:\Path\To\file.doc”)
' this is the bookmark in word to start the insert from
doc.Bookmarks(“OrderDate”).Select

Dim rst As Recordset
Dim BccList As String, x As Integer
    
    Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("AfricanMembersLive")
    Do While Not rst.EOF
        BccList = ""
        x = 1
        Do Until rst.EOF Or x >= 25
            BccList = BccList & rst!email & "; "
            x = x + 1
            rst.MoveNext
        Loop
    objWord.Selection.TypeText BccList
'
    objWord.Selection.TypeText vbcrlf ' carriage return and line feed

    Loop

objWord.Close

Set objWord = Nothing

End Sub
