    there&#039;s no truly easy way of picking the program it opens in, and there&#039;s certainly no easy way of saving it back directly from the program. <BR><BR>If it&#039;s only office documents, look into SharePoint (an MS product), which can interact directly with Office 200 or better. as for other editors, there&#039;s no agreed standard on the &#039;saveback&#039; option, so you&#039;d be stuck there.<BR><BR><BR>j<BR>
