Hi All,
we have an intranet website that is written in ASP. We have some word documents that are available for viewing via intranet. These documents are located on the web server. When the user opens these docs on their computer / make changes to these documents, we want to be able to save the changes that are made to the docs back at the server.
Could somebody please give some directions on how this can be acheived. Thanks.

If it's on your intranet, then I assume the word document is also on the server.

Assuming on all work computers there is office 2003, you could easily use ASP to fire up word (located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\Winword.exe) with the startup parameter where the word document is located.

Find out more about launching an executable (e.g. Word) here:

Hope this helps.

Hi Onthrax,

I have tried visiting the web site you have given me but could not find any DLL. Looks like that post was dated to long time back. Is there any other solution to modify the word document that is hosted on Web server and save it back to replace the original file through Internet Explorer?  

Thanks,

What do you mean a DLL?

There is a code snippet you can use in your intranets code to open up the same word document and write straight back to it.....

There is an ASPExec.DLL file we need to install. It is explained in the link you have provided me. Once we register that DLL, then we can create an object and then may start working on it.

Thanks,

Ah right... well a simple google search provides some locations for an alternative download location:
