Open variety of filetypes in one Delphi application

Most of the files scanned into our document management system are PDF, some are TIF.  DOC and XLS files may also be present.  I need to have a viewer application that will display all these types of files.  I need to be able to open the files in my application instead of their default application because I have a button that the user can click to report a bad document.

Any ideas on which components I can use to accomplish this?

Thanks,

David

We're using ORACLE AutoVue, which supports viewing of hundreds of file types...
AutoVue Release 20.2

You can seemlessly integrate it in your Delphi application (ActiveX)....

I was hoping for a solution that didn't require purchasing any new software.  I'll give this a look though.  Thanks!
