open word document -readonly in asp.net

I am new to asp.net and am trying to open a word doc readonly which may be in
any directory on the server (user will choose file name from grid which has
the path). I have looked at various posts but cannot figure out what to do.
Also, what rights are needed to do this --

Thanks so much for any help.

I'm sorry but i can't really follow what you are trying to do? What do you
mean by open the word document? As in give the use access to download it or
is your code using the Office API to open the document and display it's
contents on a webpage?
