embed word file into iFrame

Last Modified: 2015-03-18
I'm trying to embed a word document in an iFrame. Not to edit only view, so I thought you could just put in the src parameter, but it just opens up in word itstead.

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">

  <title>Word iFrame Test</title>

  Below is a preview of a word file:-
  <iframe src="War and Peace.docx" height="300px" width="300px">


Open in new window

Can anyone advise the correct way of embedding a word document inside an iFrame? Even a PDF file..
