hi all
i am confronted with a problem where i have to submit a word document to my boss who will edit it and return it to me for printing etc.i am using iis 6 and uploading the file to server from where my boss opens up in his web page and edits and then marks it to me.i have no idea how to do that.i have a page where a link to the required file is created and it opens up in ms word but read only mode . i want it to open with full functionality of word and when saved back does not ask for another name but ammendments are appended to same doc
any suggestions or solutions
i will be very thankful

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?
