    IE Activex control

    Is it possible for me to embed an IE browser ActiveX control and a Word ActiveX control into my Access forms? I don't want extra windows opening up. I have an Acrobat ActiveX control that I can embed into the apps. Anywhere to get the Microsoft goodies, or am I out of luck?
    TIA

    Re: IE Activex control

    Yes - it is possible to embed an IE control in an Access form. I did it with Access 2000 but I had a little trouble getting the same thing to work in Access 97 - maybe it's because I have both versions installed on the same machine.

    To insert the Browser, just Insert|ActiveX Control... and select Microsoft Web Browser. That comes from the DLL SHDOCVW.DLL. Just use your object browser to find the commands for navigation.

    As for the Word Document, I'm not sure. I haven't found the right OCX control yet. There is a Rich Text viewer control, I'm still looking for Word.

    In Access 2000, you don't need an activeX control for Word. Just embed a document in a field and you'll have the Word features at hand without launching an additional Word session.
