I am creating a application that does document management. I have created part of it where the user can upload the document to the server. It tracks each upload by user and organization and date time and so on.
I now want to create a way to view the documents. I really just need a link so that when they click it they can open in word or excel or whatever type of document it is.
My data is in a table and the document is on the servers folders.
I need ideas on how would be the best approach or approaches to do what I want.
I want a page that a user can select a account number and then see how many of which type of documents have been uploaded then be able to click those document types to see the documents then from there pick the document to view.

DocId, coopcode, locationid, doctypeCode,docname, dateuploaded,docstorename, username, doctype, docdescription, fileurl
