I would suggest to not even think in terms of storing your data in MS documents. Store your data in a database or even a text file or json file or xml file and then when the need arises, build and make available an MS file that the user can save to their machine (or print, etc). Treat the MS file as a type of output that you can create when needed. Manage your data elsewhere and make your life with this project much more manageable and its requirements change.

Thanks for your reply.Is it possible to create a document or option which should be updatable from front end by users.

Yes, I would call it a "web page".
