View A Word Document On A Userform

  • Hi,

    Sorry if this sounds completely weird, but I've been banging my head against the wall for a wee while now.

    What I basically want to do is display a Word document within a UserForm.

    The UserForm happens to be in Excel.

    To complicate matters, the Word Document is protected (my excel App knows the password, it exported the file to begin with).

    I know you can select a "Microsoft Office Spreadsheet 11.0" from the toolbox, however I can't see a similar control for a Word Document.

    Is this even possible? Any help greatly appreciated! : D

    Not sure there is a comparable control for word.

    If you only want to show the document then you could save the word file as html and use the webrowser control on the userform.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, that's what I'm doing at the moment, however we could be talking about 5000-7000+ forms per year once it's rolled out, and storing them in both formats could take up a lot of space!!! :)

    Yeah, I suppose so, but then you are adding a fair delay to the whole process. : D

    I will certainly continue to use this workaround if I can't actually display the word doc itself, but it would be nice if I could just add a component to the form, and tell it to load the required file (wishful thinking maybe). :)
