How to display word document in browser window? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need to display a word document inside the browser as part of our SharePoint application. But when we tried to achieve this, it is always showing a popup with options like Open, Save and Save As. We don't want this popup and directly want to show the document in browser window itself (not in corresponding applications like MS Word ).

    We have a SharePoint application and document (Word) will be Stored at document library on SharePoint Server we want to display it in browser window on Client machine. We are able to achieve this for PDF file but for Word (.doc or .docx) files, same code is showing a popup with options Open, Save, Save As.

  • Hi Kim,

     We don't have office web app with us and i didn't get the embed option at all as shown in the video.

    We have to do this on SharePoint on-premises. Please look into it again if I still can do somthing about it.
