What is document routing

Hi,

What is document routing and why can we use it.

For this requirement can we use this option.

I want to send a mail to 5 persons with a excel.
Each user updates the file and passes to next.

Does appear that you can VBA script it

Document.Route Method
Word Developer Reference
Routes the specified document, using the document's current routing slip.

Syntax

expression.Route

expression   Required. A variable that represents a Document object.

Remarks

If the document doesn't have a routing slip, an error occurs. Use the HasRoutingSlip property to determine whether there is a routing slip attached to the document. Routing a document sets the Routed property to True.

Example

If the active document has a routing slip attached to it, this example routes the document.
Visual Basic for Applications

If ActiveDocument.HasRoutingSlip = True Then ActiveDocument.Route

This example routes Feedback.doc to two recipients, one after the other.
Visual Basic for Applications

Documents("Feedback.doc").HasRoutingSlip = True
With Documents("Feedback.doc").RoutingSlip
    .Subject = "Your feedback please..."
    .AddRecipient Recipient:="Tad Orman"
    .AddRecipient Recipient:="David Simpson"
    .Delivery = wdOneAfterAnother
End With
Documents("Status.doc").Route
