    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.
