BLOB+Word Doc+ Crystal Report

Hi experts,
I stored a word document as BLOB in Sql2K.
Now I want to display it in Crystal report. The problem is that if I store an image, I can see it in the report. But if store a word doc in BLOB field, I cannot see it. The report is just showing blank.
Help in this matter is highely appreciated.

Thanx
