    Hi,

    I have a small problem with users opening files from our Intranet.
    Currently they access the files by clicking on an example link below:

    href="file:\\fileserver\intranet\rates.doc"

    It opens the file as readonly and users get stuck when they want to save it
    (file saveAs is far too difficult for them!).

    How could I change the link so that it would open the file to a temporary
    file, rather then opening the link directly?

    Any advice appreciated, thanks for your time.

    Tim
