    i am new in asp and i thing i need some guidance.. I want to build an application based on ms office but online. I would like to call my web site and inside the browser to open a word (excel, powerpoint, access) document. That document will be stored to my web server, for users that don't have ms office 2007 installed to their computer. Do you know how to call an existing document from a web browser? Off course i have full rights (read-write) for the users for that folder.


    Thanks in advanced,

    Dear cv_vikram, thanks a lot for your early answer.

    I will study this tutorial and i will tell you how did it helped me. This tutorial refers to office 2003 and visual studio 2005. I want my application to be based on ms office 2007 and build in visual studio 2008. Do you think that i will have any problems with that? There aren't any function (some lines with code) in vb that should be called in my something.aspx page and load a ms word file? The web services and sql server are the only way for that?


    Thanks a lot for your help. I am in my early steps in asp so forgive me if am asking "wrong things".

     I found that http://www.runaware.com/microsoft/en-us/2007office/td?action=launch_wizard . Office online application. Of course i dont want to make poor our good friend Bill G. [:)]. Actually, i would like to build an application in which users can have a real ms office document (word, excel, ppt) in an internet explorer. Is that possible?
