Reusing a document without clearing a hidden field

I have a document that users need to edit via the web. They all must use the same document. I needed the document to store a hidden field, Data when the document is FileSave?d. However, the next time a user access the document via the Web it needs to be empty again.

I made the form with the field Data, and hid it for the Web. Also on the form I put embedded HTML:
<INPUT type="hidden" name="data" value="">
Now the field is always cleared when you edit the doc on the Web again.


<INPUT type="hidden" name="data" value="">
