How to open or save word document from visual basic asp.net applicatio

Posted 22 August 2013 - 06:12 AM

Good day

I have a word document basically a manual on how to use my program that is in MS word.

I have imported the document under same folder as my asp.net form from where I want to open or save the document.

On my form I only have a button so what I want to do is if you click the button the option must pop up to save or open the document.

I have absolutely no clue how to do this and the internet was not helpful at all if anyone can please assist.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

What happens if the person opening the document doesnt have word installed on their computer? ---just a question you might want to think about

You can force save all the documents as a text file or something similar in a addition to your word file and let the user chose.
