Display office documents on a form


How do you guys display office documents in a form? (DOC / XLS / MSG)

I am using an OLE unbound frame but it is nasty, really nasty, and so wondered what others do to achieve this?

I can't draw a word / office object on the form as I don't reference the office library to ensure late binding version compatibility.

How do you provide document management and document previews in your application?
