Using ASP.NET to work with MS Words

P: n/a
Hello Everyone,

I would like a to build a web application using ASP.NET. The application
should be able to read a microsoft words document, edit&update the
document if choose to, or create new words document. I have looked into
file system object and all I can find is asp dealing with text files. I
don't know how to go about words document. Can someone please point out
how this can be accomplished?

Thank You,
JIm

MSWord is not really a server side tool, and you can easily hang your server
by leaving too many instances open. That said, someone has kindly provided
an excellent tuorial on doing it....

You can build *.doc files using XML format without the need of MSO present
on any devices. However, your clients or users must have MS/Word 2003 to
read these xml documents you create. No backward compatibility available.
