Is there a MS Word ActiveX component that I can access from IE6 so as to display Word within my browser?

Displaying Word within your browser is a setting on your PC.
Try this:
Double-click My Computer.
Tools-->Folder Options.
Files Types tab.
Choose DOC
Hit Edit.
Make sure "Browse in Same Window" is chosen.

I think that's what you want.

Hi Dreamboat.  Thanks for the info.

Yes this proves to me that MS Word can be shown within the IE browser.  However I would like to be able to compose/modify documents within the browser and have some form of Javascript or ActiveX communication with its document contents.  Is this possible?  We all have MS Word 2003 installed on our systems so i was hoping IE would be able to simple extract from that to display the word editor.

Hi,

When you right-click a document in the Windows Explorer, chose Open with ... ---> Internet explorer.

The Word document will be "embedded" in the IEBrowser (with the Word toolbars merged in the browser menu).

Make some changes in the text and try to close, quit or save your doc to see the result.
