Display Word document in Labview front panel

Hello,

I need some help for displaying a Word document (.doc) in a LabVIEW 5.1
front panel with an activex container. I don't find example.

Thanks.

It depends here on what you are actually trying to do. If you are trying to open word, write some data to it, and then close Word I know there are some examples on Developer's Zone (zone.ni.com) for doing this. If you are trying to display the actual document in a contaner when you select "insert activex Object" make sure you select "create document". This will then allow you to display the actual docuement in the container. Be careful though this method offers much less programattic control.
