I would like to display a many page word document (saved as docx file on disc) on an access (accdb format) database form. I can use an unbound object but that will not display any scroll bars and will only display the first page. I have seen on the internet suggestions to use the webbrowser control.
I can set the source for the webbrowser (properties in design mode) to the file on disc. When I show the form however I get a dialog asking if I want to open or save the word document. Weird and not at all what I want. Another suggestion was to use the form:current event to use the webbrowsercontrol.Navigate
functionality to set the path in code. So I try that and get a runtime error that the webbrowsercontrol.Navigate
property isn't recognised.
Am I doing something wrong or is the webbrowser just not suitable for this task?
