Viewing Bound Old Objects

P: n/a
Thanks for reading my request for help!

I have a Bound Object Frame that I have stored a Word Document. When
I double click to view the document it is very small and unreadable.
If I try to zoom it to 100% it reverts right back to a small image.
Tried to click and drag the edge to resize it that didn't work either.

When I open this form up on another PC it work fine....

What am I missing here... it there an option that I missed or a
tool... I'm beginning to hate Ole Object :(

Please Help!

Thanks

Bill thanks you for reading my question... Your right it is not a
pretty thing at all.

The reason:
I have a SQL Database and Web site that we keep up with On Call
information for many groups and we are a Service Company. I created
this database to immolate the Web but on the web we have Word
Documents too. I need the Access completely stand alone so Management
could download and have all the information incase we lost our
network.

Now can you help me? Oh please this one is kicking my butt.

I would still advise against it - too many embedded objects will bloat
the database exponentially and you are inviting corruptions. You could
try just storing a link to the location of the document and trigger a
shell event to open it in word. This is the path i would recommend. You
could create a procedure to download the word docs with the database
and links intact.

or you could use the ms word com library to interact with the word docs
and extract the text into a memo field or a series of text fields.
Using the lebans rich text editor you could even read and write
formatted text.

But the ole window was never neant to display word docs.

"I created this database to immolate the Web..." - N. Graves

Hmm... I think this is a rather interesting use for a database...
>From Dictionary.com
immolate \IM-uh-layt\, transitive verb:
1. To sacrifice; to offer in sacrifice; to kill as a sacrificial
victim.
2. To kill or destroy, often by fire.

"... but on the web we have Word Documents too." - N. Graves

Meh, they'll still burn ;)
