I would like to open a word docment as Read-only in ASP . Is it self possible ??
Just a regular link to a Word doc should let the user open it up. And he's probably NOT going to be able to save it back to the Web site.
And of course you could set the Word doc's read-only property from Windows Explorer (right-click...) but a user could easily save the file to his hard drive and then uncheck the attribute and then make changes to the file on his own PC.

Yeah, good point, unless you provide a specific function they will not be able to save the document back tot he server so the server version is effectively read only but once it is downloaded you are basically stuffed....
