NTFS access to only one file

using Windows Server 2003 Standard as a file server.  we have a consultant coming in and they need access to only one file on our file server.  'Allow inheritable permissions' is on.  Is there a way to give this user 'modify' permissions on only one file (ie. 'document1.doc') and nothing else?

\\server1\shared\folder1

document1.doc
document2.doc
document3.doc

Create a separate login for that user that is NOT a member of any of the groups that are included in the inherited permissions.  Then give that user account Traverse Folder/Execute File permissions to the upper level folders and Modify permissions to only that one document. Also be sure that if there are any share permissions involved that those are set to Read for this user account.

I not sure you want to use Traverse/Execute setting because this will allow users to open files within the parent folder and if allowed to propagate to subdirectory then the user will be allow to open the files in the subs.

I would use List Content/read data instead then give the rights you want to the files or you can just give rights to a user account as describe by HyperCat to just the three files.  Then give them the complete UNC path to the three files.

So do not give any rights to consultant1 accept at the file level.
