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.

Try using "OutsideIn" (at http://www.inso.com) which is an OCX version of the "QuickView" application that comes with Windows NT.

Thanks for the quick response.  Also found AmViewX that looks pretty good also.
