Open Or Edit A File In A Sharepoint Library
The method that you choose to open or edit a file in a library on a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services site depends on what you want to do with the file and how the library is set up. For example, you may want to just open a file to read it, or you may want to make changes to it. If you open a file while you are browsing through a library on a SharePoint site, the 2007 Microsoft Office system program that the file belongs to displays a message that asks whether you want to open the file as read-only or for editing. This paper explains how to open or edit a file in a SharePoint library.
