    Hello, you can actually embed the document onto your form by hosting it on a webpage and then displaying it it using this script provided below. However, this will only offer a frame displaying the Document so long as you already have it hosted elsewhere otherwise this will not work.

    <a target="_blank" href="YourDocumentHere.doc" >Word Document</a><br /><br>
    <iframe src="//www.some-domain-123.com/index.html" name="mywindow" width="100%" height="100%" style="border: 1px">Sorry, your web browser does not support IFRAMES.</iframe>

    An alternative way would be to just copy and paste everything to place it all into a FreeText(HTML) Field.

    Now if that doesn't appease you then you can also just post it somewhere online and Hyperlink it. This could also be setup to just download as well with this script.

    <a target="_blank" href="YourDocumentHere.doc"  

    title="Click here to open Word document">


    Click here to open the provided Word document</a>


    I hope this helps to get you started but if you need further assistance just let us know.

    There may be a fourth way I just found using a Service called " View Docs Online ". This one has an Embed Feature once you upload your document though during my tests I couldn't seem to get past that part since it appeared to be experiencing problems today but I will update you if that changes. However, I found that there are several other similar services by other companies available as well with similar features too.

    Okay so here's an Update on that. There was a problem with the Doc File I had so I remade it and saved it as just a normal .Doc File instead of the newer filetype and I was able to use the above service.

    Form with Embedded Example:  http://form.jotform.co/form/32103797729865

    You just need to grab the script and paste it into the Html Field.
