detect file edit

Hi Marc,

Do you know any way without using code to detect if a file in a library was edited, and not just some its "properties" updated? In other words the user opened the file up in word and edited/saved. I want to reset a status field to "new" whenever the user edits a word doc.

I can't think of any client side way of doing this effectively without doing a compare of the two files on the client. If you write your own upload function, then you could trap on that and make your determination.
