    displaying .doc,.xls,.pdf etc in an iframe

    Hey all.

    I have a page where i thought it might be an idea to display documents such as .doc, .xls, .pdf which are uploaded by a client, directly though a current page, instead of clicking a link to open it in a new window.

    My suggestion is to use an i-frame which loads the document url.

    I envision possible problems with the iframe which loads the document....bringing up the save file as dialog box, instead of loading the document itself within the page.

    Does anyone have suggestions or comments on this idea?

    That's a good question. All my experience I've always wanted a dialog box or for it to open in a new window. I'll be interested to hear a solution.
