Microsoft OneDrive Word Web App

You can embed an Word document that you have stored on Microsoft OneDrive. After you complete these steps, your word document will appear on your post or page.

Note: On February 21, 2014, Microsoft changed the name of their service from SkyDrive to OneDrive. If you have any previously embedded SkyDrive documents, they will continue to work. For new embeds, please use the instructions here.
