I thin you can Export the record from the file menu into a CSV file or RTF. It will ask you which fields to map, where you can specify the Memo field.

The CSV file can be opened in Excel or an RTF can be opened in Word.

I don't know if these are the file types you will choose, you do have options, but the Export in Access is the easiest way.

I am interested in the code. It is something like

Dim objApp As Object
Set objApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objApp.Visible = True

I need to establish a path to the Word document

Thank you.

The easiest way to get the info into Word would be to do a Mail Merge in Word. Word allows you to specify an Access database as the data source for the mail merge.
