If you want to upload file(s) from a web address, Google Docs provides you an opportunity to do so. Though the file upload option is there, it isn’t the most handy one. However there is a link available that can help you open a document in Google Docs from the Internet.
The link is valid for different formats like documents, spreadsheets, presentations and PDF, having extensions such as .doc - .txt - .html - .rtf - .odt - .xls - .csv - .ods - .ppt - .PDF - etc.
Check out the direct link below:
If you’re logged in to your Google account and your browser is still open, you can very easily create a batch file in Windows. The file will automate the upload of various files to Google Docs.
e.g. the text below can be easily saved as a .bat file after being copied in the Notepad and after its processing, both the PDF files will be uploaded to the Google Docs in separate tabs of the browser(Firefox).
start /d "%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox" firefox http://docs.google.com/?action=updoc&formsubmitted=true&uploadURL=http://www.fireworksafety.com/pdfs/FireworkSafetyTest.pdf
