Document Viewer Control

Need a control to put on a VB form that will allow viewing of various types of documents including Word, Excel, .txt and .pdf
We want this to be read only, but we want to be able to load a document from disk to the database (SQL 7) in an image datatype (BLOB).  The document is then retrieved from the database and displayed in the control.
We DO NOT want to invoke the associated application, just view the document.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
