Edit office files?

I juts need to know one thing.

Can I upload my office files to confluence (excel & word), and then let my users edit them "online"?
With that i mean - NOT downloading a copy of the file locally to edit it.

IF possible - is there somewhat of versioncontroll? If one file is editied by multiple users?

If I'm editing and someone else starts to edit the same file - what will happen?

Anyone who anser this question will make my day.

Yes you can do that. It does version the documents for each save. It utilizes WebDAV to do this. There is a macro in the marketplace that will lock the file if someone else is editing it. It is called Arsenale Lockpoint - Attachment Checkout.

The edit in office functionality will only work with IE or Firefox(after installing an extension) ... not Chrome or Safari.
