I  am not sure if this is possible or not. My boss creates files on a monthly basis for other dept. heads to view/change. She isn't sure if these dept. heads are even viewing these files. Is it possible to see who has viewed a particular file? I know who has ACCESS to it but how do I see if they are even viewing it? This file is stored on our server. Can I set something up to show if anyone has viewed the file?

 You should be able to do this by switching on "Audit Object Access" from Group Policy and defining this on the files/folders you want to audit.
Hopfully this should help: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/w2k3/gp/group_policy_security_audit.htm
