  • Hi,

    Is there any specific error you are getting ?, if yes please mention it here.

    If you wish to display files / folders from client machine?

    If yes, make sure the location is shared and everyone have at least READ permission.

    Please refer - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-sharepoint-services-help/page-viewer-web-part-HA010024045.aspx a very good MS article on Page Viewer Web Part.

    Let us know if this helps

  • Hi,

    Page viewer webparts are used to display contents from pages only. 

    If you want to display the same from any other files then upload them into sharepoint document libraries and used content editor webpart with embed tag to display them.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Hi,

    Use the following format

    \\machinename\Folder\Files

    Make sure the folder is shared to the intended audience

  • Hi!

    Absolutely I agree with Rahul, Page Viewer WebParts are used to display the content of Pages.

    There can be various possible ways to display the contents of a file on Page Viewer WebPart.

    One way is to develop a custom Application page which reads the file and sends back the response in customized format.

    This customized format can be displayed on the Page Viewer WebPart.

    Regards,
