Access OLE Objects (Word docs, Excel, etc..) in DB
Posted on 1999-01-22
I posted this in the general section, too.
I have a database that contains an OLEObject field. This field can contain Word documents, Excel Spreadsheets, etc... I need to know:
1) How to correctly retrieve the Documents name without having to retrieve the entire document itself.
2) How to retrieve the Document itself (preferably using the name from number 1
I'm creating an application that gives the user an explorer like interface. The tree might look something like this:
If they click on Word documents then I would like to retrieve only the names into a listview to the right of the tree. If they double click on one of the names I would then like to bring the document up into either an instance of Word or a Word-compatible OCX.
Anyone have any ideas? The points are VERY negotiable (up to 400 for a complete answer)
