Attach Word Documents, PDF

I admit I have very little experience with VBA and any help is appreciated. I need to be able to attach one or more documents to a form in access. I am using Access for its form capability as a front end to a SQL database. Please be detailed in any answer as I am new to this. Again thanks.

You can't embed (what I think you mean by attach) Word documents or PDF files into an Access DB. What you want to do is open either Word or Acrobat from within Access, depending on what file type is selected. This is not too difficult, but you would need at least a little bit of experience in Application Objects and such. You can try using hyperlinks (search the forum for how to do that) although it's not as elegant.

(If you've been helped by me or anyone else, please add to their reputation by clicking the "scales" icon in the upper-right.)
