    I am compiling a large journal index in Access 2003. On completion I wish to
    convert it to a Word document so that it can be edited to look like a
    conventional book index. Export/Import simply copies the whole thing with all
    the lines. Is there a way of moving the text only?

    You can build an Access columnar report which will look like an index. You
    can ouput Access data to a Word document using automation, or even the menu
    option: Tools ... Office Links ... Publish it with Word.

    Do not, under any condition ever open an Access database in Word (or
    anything else which might autosave) if Word saves it, it will be corrupted
    beyond repair.

    Re: How can I convert an Access database file into a Word Document

    Thanks for the suggestion but the result is still like a database table and
    does not allow me to edit the text so that it resembles a conventional book
    index with duplications of phrases removed.
