Working with Office on client side

 I want to create a program which allows user to create form letter templates with bookmarks, store them and generate them whenever they want using ASP.NET.

As server doesn't have MS office installed on it. It has become difficult for me to design something like this. Does anybody have idea how can i implement this from client side using ASP.NET?

Hi rsurya

I have read the thread carefully; however, I am not sure I have understood the facing needs correctly. Based on my understanding, you would like to make the Microsoft Office working Integrating with ASP.NET right?

If so, I would like to suggest you try to check the following article, which talks about this topic:
Integrating Excel and Word with ASP.NET 2.0 Web Sites
Summary: Read about how you can integrate Microsoft Office Word 2003 and Microsoft Office Excel 2003 with ASP.NET 2.0 Web sites to generate form letters in Word and graphical reports in Excel. (14 printed pages)

If I’ve misunderstood the facing issue, please feel free to let me know.

 Thanks Lance... That is correct soltuion. I read about it but we are not using VSTO in our development (which is main problem).. so i need some other way to implement that.

We don't use office on server so i was thinking is there a way we can implement this at client side.

Client-side validation works, but server-side does not.
Hey all,I have got this text box control on my webform, which has two validators.. 1. RegularExpressionValidator and 2.

Validation Controls in .NET ( Client side or server side?)
 i have a very basic question. We have all these validation controls in ( required field, range validator and others) question is the required field validator is a server side control. So does that mean that it does a post back? it client side or server side control  The only controls that post back are buttons and other inputs where you set AutoPostback="True", such as a dropdownlist or a textbox.  Another way of posting back is using an UpdatePanel and placing a trigger in it for a specified control and/or event. All controls are considered clien...

Jscript, moving from client-side to server-side (.NET)
Hey all I’m working translating a web-app written in client-side Jscript to run on the server-side as JScript.NET. Without needing to get too specific, I am using Jscript because the original page aggregated raw data to produce statistical results (this was done dynamically based on user 'sort-by' options). The final output is an html report that can be emailed. Because this is currently being done on the client side, as the raw data grows the load-time grows as well (to the point that has almost become unusable). I’m posting here to see if anyone has any experi...

When to use client side varidation and server side varidation in .net?
In .net or classic web application we can varidate user data either on client isde or server side. How to select which side varidate to be used? Thanks!

How to write data to a file in client side using javascript or someother client side scripting language.
Hi, I would like to know how to write a data to a client side file using javascript or someother client side scripting language.

Server-side or Client-side
In general, I'm wondering if there are any criteria to use when choosing between using a client side element or a server side element. For example, if I'm going to put an HTML table on a page, how do I decide whether or not to use a server control?  Should the server side always be chosen or if there is not explicit server side functionality required is it better to opt for a "normal" client side table? Obviously, if there is a need for server side control the question is answered, I'm looking more at more ambiguous situations. Thanks  This is from Micros...

If I have a form within my aspx page which connects to a database on the server side what is it considered? If I have some business logic written within a VB file when the client access the functions within that business logic (for example some kind of validation function) does the client browser actually downloads that VB file? Can someone suggest how to differentiate between client side and server side components within a based website?  Hi, i can&#...

Is it possible to call client side function from server side code without initial client request?
Atlas is great. I'm using timer to periodically check database changes on server to populate client side controls with new data. Is it possible to do it without a lot of client requests to server which takes a huge useless network traffic? Server should call client side function on all connected clients when, for example, 'database updated' event occurs on server. Thanks.

communication between client side(java script) and server side in .net project
I have a question which is, when building a .net project, we are able to use server side code and client side code(java script). How do they communicate? Thanks Client Side coding works with the WebBrowser. So when ever you write client side code you have to keep browser compatability in your mind and you have to code. Server Side code works with Web Server (IIS) and it's ASPNET ISAPI's. The won't directly communicate with each other. But using AJAX you can all server side code from Client Side!
