    You need to store the file on your web site for a start, then you can create a link to the document. However, the user must have software that's capable of opening .doc files to be able to view it, you cannot guarantee that everyone will have a full office suite (such as OpenOffice or Microsoft Office) in which case users will probably see it with something like Wordpad.
