Making links to word doents (.doc) - Dreamweaver AppDev

We are creating webpages on a local host system. We are having problem specifying the directory of the microsoft word doent we are trying to create a link to. When the user clicks the link, we want the doent to be displayed in the web browswer. Here is the tag and directory we are using : <a href="C:\test.doc"> Click here to view doent</a> what is wrong with this?...

    It's linking to my C drive. Not the file. You need to specifically point to
    the box that the file is on...typically it's network alias name on your
    network.
