    Hi,

    I have stored a Word document into a BLOB column.

    U should use
    1. OLE item in form and describe OLE object characteristics in property panel.
    2. same event (for example ON-MOUSE-CLICK) for activate OLE object.

    Hi,

    Actually, the application is a web based one.
    We use, IIS as our Web-Server.
    From the browser, the user will see a button called INVOICE. When he clicks on the
    button it should open INVOICE.DOC in word on the client system. This is our exact requirement.
    We have developed it using Forms Server.

    I have loaded the document into a blob. Will it be possible for me to retrieve it in Word using
    OLE.

    Thanks in advance.

    Vijay.
