Opening Hyperlinked Microsoft Office Documents Stored in WebDAV Server
If you place a hyperlink to Microsoft Office document on a webpage the Office application will open the file as red-only. This is a default Microsoft Office behavior. To open a Microsoft Office document as read-write use one of the following workarounds:
- Add OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing DWORD Value on a client machine under the key
Set the Value data to 1.
See OpenDocuments Control about how to use it at Microsoft website.
The SharePoint.OpenDocuments ActiveX is located in OWSSUPP.DLL and installed with Microsoft Office 2007.
Note that Microsoft Office requires Class 2 WebDAV server.
