      word document / layout

      Post

      Can anyone tell me how to put a word document (a letter) into a layout?  I am using FMpro 10 v3.0. Thanks

          You can insert files such as a word document into a container field. If this is a one page document, you can size the container field to be a full page in size and the first page will be displayed in the layout.

          Use the Insert Object | create object from file method to insert the file as an object if you want to see the first page of the document file instead of just a file icon.

            I have tried to do this but in the "insert" drop down menu there is only insert "graphic object" and still does not help. Am I missing something? I am using a Mac does this make a difference?

              Could be. I'm on windows. Insert Object supports OLE (Object linking and embedding)--which is a Windows feature.

              You might try using a web viewer for this. Just as a web browser can be set to open a file. You can set a Web Viewer to open and display a file using the same syntax.
