word or excel documents as web forms

    Dear Mr or Mrs,

    I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar goal before.
    We have numerous word and excel docs in our company. I was wondering if
    there is a way to create those as web forms and bind them to a database. We
    dont have a problem with creating a database to fit the need.

    I know that an easy workaround would be to code asp.net pages from the word
    and excell docs but i just thought it might be worth while to ask.

    Having the word docs and excel docs would make printing really easy and all
    formating.

    Looking forward to any advice

    Sincerely
    Dan

    If you are asking about storing your old documents for future reference via
    web browser then clearly you should convert them to pdf versions (portable
    document file). However, these files cannot be edited or changed so easily
    like word or excel files.

    Alternatively, you could zip your files and then make them available for
    download because Windows XP, Vista and Windows7 have unzip programs.

    Storing them as web pages is not a good idea IMHO.
