How would you Embed a document in a form for editing?

Is this possible, if so how would I go about doing it.

In my form I would like to Embed a word doc.  When a button is clicked the word doc opens the user then can edit the word document and then the word document is saved.  This way the user can open and print the word doc and make changes as needed.  It will be the same word doc for each document.  It would almost seem like the same attached file in every document, but I want them to be able to open and edit it.  The users are using R5 clients.  No web access only client access.

In all my excited haste, I forgot to ask how you open it with a button?

I have tried @Command([ObjectOpen]) with no luck.

in LS. you can get the embedded object by using the NotesDocument.EmbeddedObjects property . this will return a NotesEmbeddedObject. to open the embedded word doc NotesEmbeddedObject.DoVerb("&Open"). check the verbs property of the NotesEmbeddedObject to list all supported verbs.
