My survey application gets me a calling list, on on the calling list, I see who I need to call, and what project they participated in. To get detailled project information, that information is currently contained in a Word document.

I know I could import all this information in Access ultimately, but it would be just a bunch of memo fields of unstructured data, and my co-workers use these word documents, so I'd be basically doubling the work by adding it to my db. I've figured out how to create a button that opens the specific word document that I need. So, just wondering if there's a way in VB to:

1. Open Word (currently hyperlinking to the file)
2. Initiate a search in the word document (currently done manually)
3. Drop a value coming from Access in the Search criteria (currently done manually)

Thanks in advance.
