Default Upload/Download doc/docx

1.) Is there a good reference with examples for how to upload and download Word documents to/from the server with VS2012 and VB?

2.) Also, I could use suggestions as to whether it's best to store the documents in SQL or direct to a server folder. The documents would not be shared between users.

Thank you.

Hi there,

For some examples on uploading and presenting documents, take a look at the exercise Customizing Templates of the ListView Control on page 538.

For a discussion of the pros and cons on storing files in the database, take a look here: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/414/stori...with-aspnet-20

For implementation check out the same article and the updated version of it here: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/556/build...stem-using-net
