    Probably a really silly question, I just made a database with hyperlinks to
    word reports. I have been asked if there is a way to store the word
    documents inside the access program. So far there are over 300+ reports, each
    consisting of several pages.
    Thanks

    Well, if you ask whether it is possible, yes: you can store documents in a
    field of type OLE Object.

    If you ask whether it it practical: no the database will bloat badly and
    quickly be unusable.

    The best solution will be to linking the documents, as you have done.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
