Hi Amer Seif el Dine, hmmm... this doesn't sound like something I would want to do voluntarily, but I asume you have a good reason ;-) Since you are out for a simple solution I don't suppose you want to write an editor kit for the DOC and XLS filetypes as this would be VERY much work to get it correct. Depending on how advanced your Excel/Word files are you could convert atleast your Word files to RTF and from that easily load the RTF reader and append whatever you want, for instance an image. As far as I know there facilities within Word/Excel and Visual Basic that will let you do this relatively simply. I suppose this might be a little easier with the OfficeXP as they were suppose to use XML as an open standard for saving documents. I heard some terrible things later though that it was Microsofts interpretation of XML and I haven't actually bothered to look so it might be fixed. This means it _might_ be easier if you can assume all documents are produced with OfficeXP or newer. Good luck! Thomas
Thanks Thomas For your help. I decided to save the files as html and then access them from java. i think it's too easier and flexible.
now i am asking you about a tutorial to access html files and inserting applet (a picture for example that takes a result from a java program and then if it is true it makes an applet enabled else disabled) Thanks a lot Thomas.
Hi Amer Seif el Dine, Usually I turn to the Java tutorial at www.java.sun.com, but as you maybe allready tried it doesn't quite cover this. I have found great joy in a book called "Core Swing - Advanced programming" it discusses among other more advanced topics HTML editing using JEditorPane or parsing without displaying. I suppose you can check the contents at amazon.co.uk or something and from that find out if it's worth it for you. It's written by Kim Topley and has ISBN nummer 0-13-083292-8. IF someone else reads this and has something to add, perhaps an online reference don't hesitate to reply. Good luck with your work! Thomas
