Access 2007: Export to word VBA problem when using captions in listbox, HELP! (1 Viewer)

Hello, I have a database that users here have helped me improve on several occasions. One of these improvements was to change a listbox that exported the selected fields to a word document to show the field captions rather than the field names (ie. FName to 'First Name'). However, I'm not sure how the code for the export query needs to be changed to reflect this. I'm going to post the code for this item as well as the database. If you choose to download the database, the form that I am talking about here is 'makewordtable'.
When I run the code found in the attachment, I get an error "Run-time error '424' Object required" and the points to the line: For X = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 2.
The code was working before the field list was changed to a caption list.
If any experts know how to work with this change I very much need the help.

Thanks so much, Bevo S.
