I have an asp.net page with hyperlinks to word documents. Is there a way to make the documents read-only? If a user wants to save a copy to their desktop and make changes to that version, that's fine. But I want the document to opened from the hyperlink as read only. Thanks.

If they are being serviced from an NTFS file system just make the folder(s) that they are coming from have read only permissions for the user that is opening them.
