Can we read documents inside SharePoint like .doc, .ppt and .xls etc without saving them in Documents Library in SharePoint?

I want to embed these documents in SharePoint Page and don't want to save inside SharePoint as those documents are in some server and I am reading them using virtual directory and http Service.

There is no Straight forward way to do this. Even if the document resides in Document Library.

One way is to read the document into memory and convert it to web page (html) and load it into a div or panel
