    Default Edit Office Documents from ASP

    I have several office documents (word,excel) linked from my asp page. I should be able to edit those files without having to download it to the client. Is this possible

    Perhaps check these out:<BR><BR>Updating Excel From the Web by Bill Jeffries - 10/21/1999<BR>http://www.15seconds.com/issue/991021.htm<BR><BR>Sending Data to Microsoft Word - 10/3/2000<BR>http://www.kosob.com/detail.asp?t=t&id=552<BR>If you want to send your Web page content to a Microsoft Word file, you can use a different content type value. Here&#039;s the ContentType change you should use: <BR> Response.ContentType = "application/msword" <BR>This will cause your Web page&#039;s output to be read by Microsoft Word. You may get a dialog box asking you to open or save the ASP page. Even though the extension is .asp on the file you&#039;re prompted to save, it will open correctly in Word.<BR><BR>Best regards,<BR>-Paul<BR><BR>J.
