    i am in the process of designing an application that uploads documents to the
    webserver from my ASP.net \ winforms application and saved them in the
    database. Now i have another page which show hyperlinks points to the
    document names that are stored in the database but the question when the user
    clicks on the document how woudl i show the document to the user, if the
    document was being saved on the file system then i would simply redirect the
    user to the location of the document on the webserver and the brower then
    invokes word if this is MS work document or pdf if this is a pdf extions or
    what ever. but in this case when the document is store in the datbase how
    would i pull the document from the database, pop open the MS word or PDF
    depending on the file extension which is again comming from the database? any
    suggestions or links to code is appreciated.

    thanks
