Microsoft 365 showing the text of a Word document on an Access Form

Copper Contributor

I'm sure this has been asked many times before! Using Access and Word 365 how do I show the actual text of hundreds of short documents in a frame on hundreds of pages of an Access form as I flick through it instead of each page of the form just showing a Word Icon and then one having to open each document by clicking the Word icon? I can show documents using the old OLE Objects in a bound frame (but this is hugely wasteful of memory and speed) and I can show images of each text by copying it and pasting it as an image from Word, but these images are not editable through the Form. Can the "new" attachment help or is there a simpler solution?
