Document repository solution in ASP.NET
Posted on 2007-03-22
Hi to all,
I'm developing a big activity tracking in C# ASP.NET (Web forms). There are workers that must do a work and after the job is done they must fill-in certain documents. The documents are uploaded in a folder on the ASP.NET server. What must happen is:
1. A worker opens a document ( the document is downloaded from the server to the client machine and opened on the client machine).
2. The worker fills-in some data in the document and then saves it (could be a WORD, EXCEL, or other document).
3. A great solution would be if this document is automatically uploaded back on the server in the moment in which the user clicks SAVE in (i.e. MS WORD), but I feel that is hardly possible.
4. Another possible solution is that when the worker saves the document ( on the client) and then the worker clicks an "UPLOAD DOCUMENT" button on the web page, the document is uploaded back to the server to its according location. (my problem is that I don't know how to find the changed (saved) document on the client machine in order to upload it back on the server. It is probably saved on same client temporary location, but I'm not sure).
So what I need is a document repostory solution that can fulfil the 4 points above.
Can you help me with one?
