Opening Word from VBA without ribbon

yballan asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11
Dear Experts,

I am writing Access Database, which previews HTML code in Word.   Here is the code I am using:

    Set wordapp = CreateObject("word.Application")
    wordapp.Documents.Open FileName:="C:\ECEditor\prvWin.html", ReadOnly:=True
    wordapp.Visible = True

When I open the file, I would like to disable (or not display) the ribbon, so that the user knows that it is only meant for preview.
Is there such switch/parameter?
Please advisel.
