    I am developing a web application in .Net 3.5. <o:p></o:p>

    I have to integrate the MS word in my web application so that the word documents should not open in a new instance of MS word; instead i need the word document to be opened inside the application in the browser.

    In other words it would be a kind of simulation of MS word in our website. We should be able to access all the MS Word menu options and other features from inside the application.<o:p></o:p>


    Right now i have no idea on how will this work, only the requirement. I have no start point at this moment. I would highly appreciate any kind of help on this.<o:p></o:p>

    Hi rashid0715,

    Why not use an WYSIWYG Editor?


    Hope this helps

    Thanks for your reply, but this is not what i need. This saves some data as the word document.

     What I need is to open the ms word in my browser as if it is the part of my website.

    Can anybody help me on this please!!

    I think what you want to know is how to open word document from Internet Explorer, right?

    If so, you may try the following KB article which provides a step by step tutorial on how to perform that.

    Thanks Nai-Dong Jin ,

    I think, i am not able to clarify my question. The article you provided opens the MS word document in a seperate instance of MS word, however i need the word document to be opened within the same browser allowing us to access all the MS word tools and menu options within that browser.


    Please let me know if you understand what i need!!


    Thanks in advance buddy!!
