Do you want to use OLE automation/OLE Control? or wanted to put the doc in a text box?

1. This is if you want to open Word itself. This guaratees the format and you can control
    Word from code.

        Include Word 8.0 Object Library in the References

        Dim wd As New Word.Application
        Dim doc As Word.Documents

        Private Sub Form_Load()
            Set doc = wd.Documents
            doc.Open ("C:\test.doc")
            wd.WindowState = wdWindowStateMaximize
        End Sub

2. Otherwise use the Rich text Box by setting the filename property
