I use the Webbrowser control to display Word,Excel, and PDF files within an Access form.  To do this I call the Navigate function and set the URL to something like:
FILE://c:\my folder\myExcelFile.xls

Normally this works fine.  However, I just tried it lately and my Word and Excel files open up in a standalone window, yet the PDF files stay within the browser control.  I suspect that it's got to be either IE7 or Office 2007 (or both).  Does anyone else have this problem?  And how can I make it work the way it used to?
