Set Word docs to open in Dashboards/Advanced Tabs

When pointing a Dashboard or Advanced Tab directly at a .doc or .xls file when the file is viewed it opens into the required Office program.

Workaround:To disable this action and make the document open within the Dashboard or Advanced Tab Web Control you will need to make a couple of adjustments to the registry, these are as follows:-

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKLM\Software\Classes\Word.Document.8]
BrowserFlags=dword:00000000

[HKLM\Software\Classes\Excel.Sheet.8]
BrowserFlags=dword:00000000

As with any registry changes please ensure you make a backup first.
