I've created several Access forms, and with each, I put a button in the upper right that, when clicked, opens a pdf that explains how to use the form.

I create the file by typing it first in Word, then creating a pdf of the Word document.

One of these documents describes how to deal with a few Excel files, which I'd like to use in the document as examples. My first thought was using a snippet-type tool for sections of the file, but then thought it'd be easier to somehow embed the whole file in the document.

The upshot of my question is this... I'd like to get all of this, the Word explanation and Excel sample files into one pdf help file. Possible? How?

Thank you.

Can you not just insert the Excel samples into the Word document?

Pardon my ignorance... I thought and hoped it would be that easy, I just didn't/don't know what command to use in Word to accomplish that. I see 'Hyperlink' and 'Bookmark', which don't appear to do what I'd like.

What command should I be looking for?

Nick,

Depends on what you're trying to include. If you have a range of cells from A1:F6 that you want to include in your Word file, highlight those cells, Copy them to the clipboard, go to your Word file, place the cursor where you want the cells to appear and Paste.

Hope this helps,

Dennis

Not much different than just using the screenshot 'snip'. I was hoping it'd be easier, like embedding the file somehow...

I guess screenshotting a snippet would be pretty easy. Don't know what I was thinking, really. Darn Fridays.

Sigh.

On the Insert menu, select Object in the Text area:

You'll get a choice of Object... or Text from File... Choose Object...:

You can either insert an Excel worksheet and work with it in the document

or, if you've already saved the workbook, you can insert it:

As an update... did as Doug described, and it did work, and what was exactly what I wanted.

Thanks again, Mr. Steele!
