there is no plugin available for viewing word files within a browser.
therefore if you are sending that content type, it must necessarily be downloaded for viewing purposes in ms word.
you can try to see if there is a way to convert the word document to some usable text on upload to the server or while serving the document to the browser.
your solution will depend on your server environment.
