Editing Word Documents Online
I'm currently looking into producing an online MS word editing application, where by a user would upload a document and specify specific users that can edit and review the document.
Ideally I would like the document to be edited and saved on the server rather than the process of downloading the doc and the uploading the changes as a new doc etc
I suppose this is similar to google docs but no where near as advanced
Would anybody be able to give me any advice on how this is best achieved using php or would it be best to develop in .NET?
Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance

Hi and a belated welcome to the forums crabby
Personally speaking I reckon this would be better approached in .NET simply because WORD isn't really supported by PHP and even in .NET you might struggle. Sorry I cant help more than thatMike Swiffin - Community Team Advisor

Thank you and thank you for your response
Hmmmmm....had a feeling this would be better compatable with .NET, just getting into to .NET at the moment it's a big ol learning curve
It's a shame there's no API for google docs at the mo.

Might I suggest the FckEditor..I believe you can add your own plugins. I used the editor all the time professionally. It was actually just aquired by Adobe as well and they are using it in Dreamweaver. It's a great app and simple to setup.
