Block end users from saving to the hard drive

I need to find a way to Block end users from saving documents to their desktop or hard drive, but be able to open spreadsheets from the server, edit and save them back.  How can this be accomplished

If I am right, I don't know any way of achieving what you want, but clarifying question may help get you an answer.
I assume what you want is control over specific documents, not simply blocking access to to "My Documents", and "C-Drive" totally from these users. The later is relatively easy to do, just remove there permissions, or make read only. If it is only specific documents read from the server, that you want to force to write back there, and not be saveable anywhere else then problem is different one, and much harder to achieve. Possible it could be done with specialist document handling software, but I don't know of any way of doing it with standard windows documents (Word, Excel, etc).
