Hi Everybody,

I want to access some documents in a WebDAV folder using my web application.

The word document or xls document to be accessed is in a WebDAV folder. I want to provide option for the user to open, edit and save the documents in the webdav folder through my web application. The document names are displayed in a web page and when user clicks on the document name, the document is opened from the webdav folder in a new browser window - the document is opened using word plugin of IE. Now after user makes some changes when user clicks on 'Save' button word tries to save the document in its temporary folder rather in the Web DAV folder. I do not want the user to use the 'Save As' option of word to save the document in web dav folder. Kindly let me know what extra handling i should make so that the MS Word active x component shall open the document as if it is opening it from Web Dav Folder.

When the document is opened from IE using 'Open as Web Fodler' option, word allows to save the changes in web folder with simply 'Save' option. I want to simulate the same method when user opens the document using my web application.

Please let me know how is this possible. 

Best Regards,
Parvathi
