Hi computech1,

yeah it is possible with the OleContainer, but it's a kludge so nobody's using it and documentation is also sporadic

Hi computech1,

better use automation, not full control but at least all the methods and properties you're used to

yes definately it is possible to open a word file in a Vb window
Insert a Richedit textbox on your form and in the form load event  write the below mentioned code

RichTextBox1.LoadFile "path of the doc file"
or
RichTextBox1.filename "path of the doc file"


This shall definately work.

jayeshshah,

You have been here long enough to know not to lock questions with answers that are not even close to helping (Did you actually try your suggestion, before posting it?).  If you have any questions, about this please re-read the EE Guidelines (http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp) or contact Community Support (http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp).

Thanks,

bruintje has broken the bad news to you, so there is not a lot that can be added.

As an alternative, you could I suppose buy a commercial component, that reads Word docouments.

bruintje answer was good.

the OLE object DID show the Word Doc.

but I need only to SHOW it , the OLE conteiner allowed me to EDIT it, I need something like SCREENSHOT of the doc.
