Thanks for the initial ideas on my question here
(still open BTW)
I can now take my quest a step further.
Say I have a 'block of content' on Word document. It can be
- a paragrah
- a bulleted list
- a table
I want to be able to 'copy' that block of content to a field in an Access table, and also to be able to copy it back to a Word document, preserving the formatting as was
I have experimented simply (manually) copying and pasting across, with some success. So I suppose it is possible - Access seems to store the relevant data, though I'm still not clear how the Styles come into play.
My question is, eventually I need to do this programmatically
- (preferably with ADO/SQL as that's what I know).
Is there a super-elegant way for creating what (effectively) is a 'content management solution' with Word on the front-end and Access on the back?
