  2. Create a new report in Design view based on the Categories table.
  3. Save the report.
  4. On the Toolbox, click the Subform/Subreport button and drag the object to the detail section of the report to invoke the Subform/Subreport wizard.
  5. On the first screen of the wizard, click the Reports And Forms option.
  6. In the Reports And Forms list box, select the Products form, and then click Finish.
  7. On the File menu, click Print Preview.
  8. On the Tools menu, point to OfficeLinks, and then click "Publish It with MS Word".

Once the wizard starts outputting the file, you receive the message described in the "Symptoms" section.
