    open xls, pdf, or crystal in sub container on webpage...how?

    techies,
    i have a web app in vb.net that displays hyperlinks images (3 vertical), where when you click it opens file in a new window. what i want is to be able to click and open the file (xls, pdf or crystal) in the same page. kind of like a sub container within my page. i don't want to use frameset, what control can i use that will allow paging capability, drill down capability for say crystal or just scrolling in an xl file. an example or any info would be greatly appreciated. thank you for your expertise in advance!

    pdf is going to be tricky. XLS you can just read the results much like an access db. I have never used crystal so I don't know about that.

    PeOfEo,
    are frames the answer or should i stay away from frames altogether. I hear many negative comments about them, but i am wondering if it would be the only solution. thanks.

    I am not a fan of frames no. If you want the scrolling effect use this
    <div style="width:500px; height:500px; overflow:auto;"> This will scroll when it is bigger then the div</div>

    You can use a server side include to apply the layout to the page.
