Force document to open in Word
« on: March 22, 2013, 02:09:16 AM »
I built a document management system for Word documents.
The table of contents has links to those word documents.


For me they open using Word, but for other people here they are opening in IE using some type of Word or Word viewer inside of IE.  We both use IE8 and the other users also have Word installed.


Is there a way for Cold Fusion to force the document to open in Word?


Thanks

what's wrong with viewing a Word doc in a Word viewer inside a browser?

Thank you for the reply.

For some users it opens the document in about a 10 or 20% view, completely unreadable.
This system will be used by many people many times each day.
