If I understand you correctly, you are not looking to have everyone update the document at the same time -- you just want people to all be able to work on the document in order.

If this is the case, then an FTP server may be in line. You could upload the document (using Window's built in FTP client) to an FTP server. Then each user who needs to edit the document can just download it, edit it and save it back up there to the FTP site. They could add their initials to the end of the document so that you knew who worked on it last.

There are commercial products available like DocuShare but they are usually much more expensive. You could check out those as well.

Let me know if you have any questions about the solution I've offered.
