converting a letter from word to access db
I have a letter in word format and need to put it in an access db as a report
to add some data(names etc) preplugged using the database into the letter. I
tried just doing the report in design view and type everything in but I can't
seem to get the margins of the letter body to be justified. I either get
aligned left, right, or centered. Any help???? I have the letter perfectly
done in ms word. I tried copy and pasting but the darn thing changes from
justified to aligned left.
You can use a mail merge from Access to do this. See:

From what I have read (which is fragmented to say the least) it is to do

Preformat the cell as Text, or put an apostrophe (') as the first

There's no toggle, it's just the way the parser operates.
