Dear Experts,

I am using Access 2003 to design a Solution where I required to click a command button from Access Form to transfer a recordset to an opened Word Document.

Assuming in the opened Word Document already contained a single template table(1), but if I need to programmatically create a second table(2) based on the template table(1), the copied table(2) should be located under the template table(1) in the same Word Document Page separated by a single paragraph, how do I do it?

I hv no problem transferring the Access recordset into the table(1), I just need the vba code to duplicate an extra table from template table in same Word page if needed.

Thanks in advance.

If I understand you correctly.

To copy the table:
    Selection.Tables(1).Select
    Selection.Copy

Then move to where you want to paste the copy. One move example:
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1

Then paste what you copied:
    Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault)

Tq for your reply Mr thenelson, yes you understand my request for help correctly.

I tried your code, there are no syntax error but the Table wasn't copied and pasted as planned too, then MS Access 2003 pop up a message saying "OBJECT REQUIRE".

What is that means?

I attached a sample document for ref and the coding as well.

Private Sub Command96_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command96_Click

   
Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    Dim wd As Object
   
    Set wd = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set mydoc = wd.Documents.Open("C:\Program Files\Test.docx")
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    wd.Visible = True
     
    'To copy the table:
    Selection.Tables(1).Select
    Selection.Copy
   
    'Then move to where you want to paste the copy. One move example:
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=100
       
       
    'Then paste what you copied:
    Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault)
   
   
   
Exit_Command96_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command96_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command96_Click
End Sub

Hi,

pls try

Const wdLine = 5
Const wdPasteDefault = 0
    Set wd = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set mydoc = wd.Documents.Open("C:\Program Files\Test.docx")
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    wd.Visible = True
      
    'To copy the table:
    wd.Selection.Tables(1).Select
    wd.Selection.Copy
    
    'Then move to where you want to paste the copy. One move example:
    wd.Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=100
        
        
    'Then paste what you copied:
    wd.Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault)

Open in new window

Thanks guys, both of your advice gave me a big help with some slight modification of my own.

'To copy the table:
    wd.Selection.Tables(1).Select
    wd.Selection.Copy

Changed to:

'To copy the table:
    mydoc.Tables(1).Select
    wd.Selection.Copy

the rest of the codes were combination from both comments and it copy and paste as intended.

Thanks again.
