I would suggest not doing it with word, or alternatively, not doing it with ASP. Yes, it is quite possible to do this all with ASP, but it is not a simple project, it is a fully dedicated web app.

I would suggest Zoho Office as a very adaptable web-based alternative. Most of the applications are free and run from the web (no download) and can import MSOffice-made files without a hitch. They even include file-sharing capabilities. Does this sound like something you could use?
