I have an Access table (tblSpeakers) with an OLE Object field where a link to a word doc is stored. I want to open word and show the user the contents of the document. <BR><BR>rs.open "Select wordDoc from tblSpeakers;", Conn<BR><BR>response.contenttype = "application/msword"<BR>nFieldSize = rs(0).ActualSize<BR>imageBytes = rs(0).GetChunk(nFieldSize)<BR>response.binarywrite imageBytes<BR><BR>this code block starts word, but doesn&#039t recognize imageBytes as a Word doc. maybe because it&#039s linked? I need to bring up a linked word doc. Any ideas?
