I do not have any experience with web development, so I'd really appreciate an advice on the following issue:
a team of about 10 users currently has lost of documentation (mainly MS Office files and PDFs) on a shared drive, organized into folders. They want to keep it there, but at the same time want to have some very simple system that would allow them to navigate documentation in a more efficient manner. They cannot install any s/w on that computer.
Would a few simple html files on the same shared drive, with some links to each other and links to relevant documents in each work?
The issue is that, as I mentioned I do not have any experience, so I do not know what possible problems may appear if we just create these pages, put them on that shared drive and share link to the main page with everyone in the office. So, comments/suggestions will be greatly appreciated
I guess. Why not? You mean you want to create some kind of menu in HTML with links to the files and maybe a desciption of them, something like that?
The only thing I can think of is that the browser will treat this just like a download from the web. You'll get "What do you want to do with this file?" dialogues when appropriate.
You could even use the FileSystemObject to parse the directories and create the links for you. This way you do not have to maintain any list of files, code could do it all.
