    Default editting files directly from a website

    I was wondering if any knew of a way to allow files uploaded to a server to be editable by a user. More specifically, I have created a system to upload word documents to my website. Right now, I display a link (standard anchor tag <a href='fileName' target=_blank>fileDescription</a>)to each file and anyone can open them and save them to their hard drive. I would like to allow someone to open the file, make changes, and then save the file right back the server in one step.

    Your browser is inherently disconnected from the server. You&#039;d have to upload the file in some form or fashion.<BR><BR>Besides, you really need to reconsider trying to offer this. It could end up being a huge security hole as well as an easy way for viruses to propagate themselves on your server.<BR>It is easy to hide destructive macros and binaries in MS Office files.
