    Access + Word playing table hockey (2003)

    Good day mates!

    Wrong Forum? Please move.
    Take a look at the provided WORD Document. The red fields get their data from some Access database.
    Access looks like this:
    tblSchools
    [ID]
    [School]
    [assignedCountry]

    Now the problem is, that some schools have like 3 assigned Countries, that means I have 3 times the same document (3 pages) - first problem: could maybe be done in one document.

    But now the major problem!!!!:
    Some schools are not present in all Committees (take a look at the word document to know what I am talking about). That means I have to delete the table cells on page 2+3 which do not apply and I do have to put a "----------------" in every cell on page 1 which is not appliable to the school

    Let's have an example: School XY is only present in 7 Committees, that means I have to put a "-------------" in e.g. 1st Committee and ECOSOC and I have to delete those table cells on the bottom.
    ^^Doing this for 50 schools is just a pain in the ***


    How could this be done more easily? Word is just too nice of a text-editing tool that I don't really want to change to access. If that is the only solution - please tell me.

    Since you asked this in the Access forum, I'll answer with my Access cap on. I don't know how to do this in Word, but it should be possible in an Access report, probably with subreports for the committees. If you really want a solution in Word, I can move this thread to the Word forum, or you can repost it there and I will lock this one. I'm not optimistic about the Word route, but there are some very clever people there, so who knows.
