How insert a Word mail merge document on page two of a report

I have a 1 page report and I want to insert a page break and have a Word mail merge document appear on page 2.

Can this be done?

In theory, maybe.

But a mail merge document usually requires some user input about which record is going to be the one displayed.

And the fidelity and looks of an inserted Word document will probably be questionable.

I wouldn't pursue embedding the Word document as a solution for myself.  I would look at eliminating Word altogether and doing everything as an Access report, or at automating Word from Access VBA code (opening the merge doc, pointing it a the recordsource and selecting the required record(s) and issuing a print command.

Because the Access report has margins and the OLE control the merge doc would be embedded in has a finite size it is very hard to get a seamless look and cover all the possibilities.

That's my 2 cents, anyway
