I need to develop an app using MS-Access 2016 that allows to view several kinds of files [*.xlsx (MS-Excel), *.docx (MS-Word), *.msg (MS-Outlook) and PDF] INSIDE the form (something like the MS Windows Explorer). I ask you to support me to solve this issue.
Best Regards,
Wanderley Egídio

Unfortunately,Access is not really design to do what you ask.

Access is a database tool for process data stored in a database. Usually text.

I have displayed PDFs on a form in the past using the Web Browser Control (WBC). I had to first install a PDF viewer that worked well within Internet Explorer.

Another option is to purchase a third-party control what does what you need.
