When opening a document to edit, it prompts for authentication every time. Is there some reason why it isn't passing the auth cookie with the request to open the document. Is there a way to get it to pass the auth cookie with the request so it doesn't prompt your for authentication every time?

Matt, that is the problem!

Word has no idea who you are in forms authentication.
That is the reason that we need to do auth dance every time with any office application and Form Authentication.
Per se, word doesnt have cookie and has nothing to send to the browser.
