 Help with linked Word Docs

I'm not sure whether this is the right NG or not, but perhaps someone here
can help...

I have a database with lots of linked Word documents as OLE objects.  There
are of many different lengths and formats.  I would like to be able to print
reports including these documents in their entirety depending on search
criteria created in Access.

I understand that the Access reports are not flexible enough to do this, and
that I will probably have to figure out how to print the reports in Word.
What I need to find out is if it is possible to get the document path (what
I need to tell Word to open each document) from the OLE field in my
database.  Is there something in VBA that can do this for me?  I would
prefer not to duplicate that information by creating an entirely new field
with the path in it.

Any suggestions would be tremendously appreciated.
