Hi becky,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Word documents cannot be natively displayed in a web browser. You can post a link to the document in Premium Web Builder however, the website's visitor will have to download the document to view it.

You can post a link to it by using an href tag after you upload the document to your account.

Another alternative would be to save the Word document as a PDF. PDF files are supported within the browser, so it would display in the browser window without the visitor having to download the file prior to viewing.

Here's a link to adding href tags in Premium Web Builder:
