VBScript - Link to file on server, open in original state & readwrite mode

P: 200
Good day, I desperately need to get the following working.

I have an application that uses vbscripting as it's code developing, The two problems I have is:

1. Creating a link to open the attached file lies on the server in it's original state.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. fileString = "<a href='upload/test.doc' target=''> View File </a>"
The problem is this open's the doc in a web page and not in Microsoft Word.
I need it to open the files in its state being Word,Excel etc.

2. When opening the file in its original State the file must be readwrite.
The user must be able to edit & save the file on the server.
so the user can make the changes & just click save.

Please help - i need to get it going :(

Any ideas, opening a file using vbscript?

or perhaps calling another program via vbscript to open the file in edit mode
