Document Database

Hi folks

I am a total noob to this and am hoping I wont be too much of an annoyance!

I'm looking to write a program in either VB.Net or C# that is basically a document library.

The idea is to have a general location of about 300 documents which could relate to one or a handful of products we supply.

The document library would be a program that could be used to easily navigate using certain tags and pull out the required document.

Is this something that is possible or am I dreaming a little bit??

I know I havent given much details, so if you need to know anything else then let me know.

Thanks for your help!

My first thought is that you should look at using SQL Server as a back-end. You can enable the FILESTREAM feature of the database instance to store binary fields externally so as not to bloat the data file. You can also enable a file share on the data. You can convert any file to Byte array and save it to the database like any other data.
