viewing an Office document in web form

VM
Is it possible to view an Office document in a web form? I'm looking for a
control that will allow me to show a Word doc or PDF dynamically.in my web
form.
It's like an document embedded into the webform itself.

Thanks.

Hi VM,

Thank you for posting in the community! My name is Jeffrey, and I will be
assisting you on this issue.

Based on my understanding, you want to find a contain in web form to
display and edit office document and pdf file.

===============================================
Based on my experience, in IE, if you click a link to office document(such
as .doc or .ppt file), the IE will popup a "Downloading" dialog for you.
This is a security operation, which provent un-necessary attack.

You can try the following ActiveX control you can use on your web page to
contain Word documents on a web page:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=311765

For pdf file, if you click a link to this file, IE will open this file
embed in the IE. So I think you can just use FRAMESET and FRAME tag to
divide the web page into several part and use one part to show the pdf
file.(This part acts as a container for the pdf file)

================================================
Please apply my suggestion above and let me know if it helps resolve your
problem.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to post it in the group. I am standing by to be
of assistance.
Have a nice day!!

Hi VM,

I found that you can change the default "download dialog" behavior of
Office document.

Please follow the steps below:
1). Open "Control Panel"-->"Folder Options"
2). Click "File Types" tab page
3). Choose "DOC Microsoft Word Document"-->Advanced
4). Uncheck "Confirm open after download" checkbox

Then, all the .doc files will be open directly in IE(I suppose you have
Microsoft Word installed)

If you have any further concern, please feel free to tell me, I will work
with you.

Best regards,
