How to open and save .DOC file in the RTF Control with original?

I need to have a full source code on how to open .DOC file in the RTF Control without any embedding codes includes to the files. Which means that I use Word to edit a .DOC file and then I use VB RTF control to open it. Later, I still can save the file in VB and open with Word and maintain the originality ? I hope any kindness heart person can help me to solve. Urgent@@@ Thank you!

Native Word Doc files are incompatible with the RTF control.  If you want to have Word and RTF control edit the "document", you need to have Word save it as a RTF document.

Beware... the RTF Control does not fully support some RTF functionality that Word supports... For example, adding a frame to a document in Word and then saving it as a RTF document will completely FREEK OUT the RTF Control....
