Hello to all,
I am looking to allow access to only a particular type of file within a folder on Server SBS 2003.
For example, I want John Doe to have access to all .doc files but not to .xls files within a folder that has permission for John Doe.

Let me know if this is possible and how.

Thanks,
DR

Only if you create two subfolders Word and Excel or whatever, move the files in their respective folders, and apply the adequate permissions to these folders. (Unless you feel like editing the NTFS permissions for each file manually ...)
Inheritance can only be set per folder, not per file type.

You could alternatively write a script to do the file permissions like that.  Try Scriptomatic and see if you can alter one of the default templates to do what you're asking.  

oBdA's ansswer is the best one, IMO, though.
