Windows 7: How to open a copy of the document once clicked

How to open a copy of the document once clicked

Hey I am creating a document template in Word and in Excel to send to my employees.

Now I don't want them to make changes to that particular template so what I am trying to do is If they try to edit or make any other changes, it should open a same document for them to edit in or ask them to save it as a different file.

I am not sure if putting "Read-Only" permission would help?
