I'm feeling like I'm missing something really simple here, but I'm gonna ask any way -- dunce.gif

I need a Word docx to go with my database. A screen shot of the doc's contents is included in the opening form. But someone else, who is not versed in the inner workings of Access (like how to open to see the Navigation panel and get to the table with the attachment) is going to be managing this db - including changing any wording on the doc.

In my searching, I have not yet uncovered an easy way to open this docx file as a Word document, edit it, and then save it back as the attachment.
And to allow the user to take a screen shot of the changed doc and SaveAs a certain file name, which will also upload as an attachment and show up in the form.

Am I thinking this should be simple, but it's really complex?
Or am I just missing something simple?
