From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ActiveX Document (also known as DocObject or DocObj)[1] is a computer file in the form of a compound (text-based) document that allows a container application to use the full capabilities of server applications. This approach distinguishes between a document, such as a word document or video clip, and the software that can be applied (open, edit, display, save) to the document. ActiveX documents consist of two components: the 'document' itself and the 'ActiveX DLL or EXE server' that supports it.

A single server can support an unlimited number of documents, just as Microsoft Word can support any number of document files. The server for an ActiveX document can be an EXE or a DLL server. The document generally has the extension .VBD, though ActiveX documents can be stored within other files as well, using a mechanism called OLE structured storage.
