Office 2007 documents not appearing in iframe

P: n/a
We've been developing an application for a while which allows display of
office/pdf etc documents within an iframe in a web browser.

However, since installing office 2007 this has stopped working and instead
of them appearing nicely in the iframe they now pop up and appear within the
office program.

Does anyone know if there is a way to alter the behaviour of office 2007 so
that the documents remain embedded within the iframe, or is this something
which I just have to accept.

Thanks

AFAIK in both 2007 and previous version this is actually a client dependant
behavior. Try :

Another option could be to use an object tag (not tried)...

Hey thanks. I did as suggested in the support article and it does now open in
the iframe.

However, this must have been something the Office 2007 installation messed
around with as everything worked fine before installing 2007. Anyone know why
this was done? Also its not something i can expect all our users to do after
they install office 2007, that they then have to for every office file type
select a check box in folder options to allow them to appear in the browser.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers

That KB needs revision.
The latest document type listed is Office 8.

Office 2007 is Office 12.

I mentionned you could perhaps use an object tag inside your iframe to see
if the document is then forced to be placed inside the IE window...
