I'm using the following code to write records to Word 2016 from a table, however my header row is not displaying. Any thoughts?


Function Export2DOC(sQuery As String)
    Dim oWord           As Object
    Dim oWordDoc        As Object
    Dim oWordTbl        As Object
    Dim bWordOpened     As Boolean
    Dim db              As DAO.Database
    Dim rs              As DAO.Recordset
    Dim iCols           As Integer
    Dim iRecCount       As Integer
    Dim iFldCount       As Integer
    Dim i               As Integer
    Dim j               As Integer
    Const wdPrintView = 3
    Const wdWord9TableBehavior = 1
    Const wdAutoFitFixed = 0
 
 
    'Start Word
   On Error Resume Next
    Set oWord = GetObject("Word.Application")    'Bind to existing instance of Word
 
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then    'Could not get instance of Word, so create a new one
        Err.Clear
        On Error GoTo Error_Handler
        Set oWord = CreateObject("Word.application")
        bWordOpened = False
    Else    'Word was already running
        bWordOpened = True
    End If
    On Error GoTo Error_Handler
    oWord.Visible = False   'Keep Word hidden until we are done with our manipulation
    Set oWordDoc = oWord.Documents.Add   'Start a new document
 
    'Open our SQL Statement, Table, Query
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblSearch")
    With rs
        If .RecordCount <> 0 Then
            .MoveLast   'Ensure proper count
            iRecCount = .RecordCount    'Number of records returned by the table/query
            .MoveFirst
            iFldCount = .Fields.Count   'Number of fields/columns returned by the table/query
