Default Create a "report" in MS Word from an Excel file

Hi everyone,

I'm attempting to make a human-readable report from an excel spreadsheet that someone gave to me. The first column is header/title information, and the remaining columns to the right are individual records. Each row is a field of a record. I find this a little unusual, since I'm used to rows representing records and columns representing fields. But is there any way to take the data from one column and transplant it into a word document with the corresponding title information. In essence I'm trying to put together a little report based on this spreadsheet. I'm attempting to use a macro to put this together, but I'm unfamiliar with VSB and this is what I've gotten already from another website:

 Sub OpenWord()
    Dim wdApp As Object
    Dim wdDoc As Object
    Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.application")
    Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open _

' put your code here for working with Word
' This is Word VBA code, not Excel code

    wdDoc.Close savechanges:=False
    Set wdDoc = Nothing
    Set wdApp = Nothing
End Sub
I'm trying to make something in this format from the spreadsheet:
Field Title
     Field Value
Field Title
     Field Value
I apologize if the way I've worded anything is confusing. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Not quite sure where you are trying to go here!?! Any chance you could upload the two documents with annotations as to what you want to happen to what! (Please remember to remove all personal data!)

And, is this something that you want to run from a template automatically when you open it?
Is it going to be saved and then sent on to someone else?
Do you want it to update every time it's opened?

Hoping to be able to help (this sounds interesting!).
