    Export to Word (Access 2003)

    Is it possible to export a form or report directly to Word?

    There is, but it's not very good. It's been a weak feature of Access since early versions, and Microsoft hasn't improved it in later versions. The Tools | Office Links | Publish It with Microsoft Word menu option exports to a .rtf file that can be opened directly in Word.
    Unfortunately, a form is exported to a table format, none of the layout of the form is preserved.
    With reports, an attempt is made to preserve some of the layout, but all graphic elements (lines, boxes, pictures, charts, ...) are lost.
