I know of 2 things, but you won't be able to display the formatted text in your text box, you would need richtextbox...

1=Office Automation
 Check Microsoft Word in Project References
 Sub GetWordData
   DIM appWord as Word.Application
   DIM objDocument as Word.Document

   SET appWord = NEW Word.Application
   SET objDocument = appWord.Documents.Open ("C:\Mydoc.Doc")

   text1.Text = objDocument.Range.Text
   objDocument.Close
   SET objDocument = NOTHING
   appWord.Quit
   SET appWord = NOTHING
 End Sub


2=Webbrowser Control (to display Word Document inside of your application)
 Check Microsoft Internet Controls in Project Components
 Add Webbrowser Control to your form (with name "webBrowser")
 Sub OpenDoc(Path as string)
   webBrowser.NavigateTo Path
 End Sub

Hope this helps

even a richtextbox doesnt potentially handle all the formatting of a ms word document.  for this you should save the word file as a temporary text file, and then read that text file into your textbox.
