How to use RichTextBox in ASP.NET?

    I'm trying to make my ASPX page able to process WORD format document. I
    learned that RichTextBox might help me, but I can't use it either by adding
    it to my Web Control list or by writing "<asp:RichTextBox id="c1" />" in the
    ASPX file. The error message shows "Cannot find RichTextBox in the
    namespace of web controls" (something like that). Is there any way to add
    RichTextBox in ASPX file? Or where can I find a substitute?

    Thanks in advance!

    A RichTextBox control is an ActiveX control, which is not native to .NET.
    Use the standard Web Forms TextBox control and you should find similar
    functionality. If you must use the RTB, you can right click on the ToolBox
    and add it From the COM/ActiveX category.
