You need to share the folder, but you can restrict access using Access Control Lists so that users can only open the file that you want them to use.

NTFS permissions.  Create the folder, share it, set the permissions you want.
Hi WannabeNerd,

Move it to another folder and share the folder or change the permissions of ALL the other files in the current folder so that other people can't open it.

How is that answer different from mine?  This should be at least a split...
