Publishing Word documents and having them render as HTML to the end user

  Asked By: Ravi    Date: Feb 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2813

Is it not possible to check in a MS Word document to the documents collection and have it render in a branded master page as HTML to the web end user? If so what are the steps to do this....is there a blog that covers this?

MOSS or WSS?

If MOSS, then there is a document  conversion service that can convert Word documents  into SharePoint pages. The user  uploads the document and then using the document's dropdown menu requests the conversion. Typically the converted document is moved to another library for user access.

If you have MOSS Enterprise Edition then you can also display Excel files and InfoPath forms in a browser.

Just as Mike suggested, you can use the document  conversion service in MOSS but I’m afraid that the document cannot be rendered automatically after the conversion. Definitely it will need coding to achieve what you want. For the programming part, I would suggest you post a new thread in Programming and development queue.
