The following code example uses the Add method to copy a file from a document library to the Shared Documents folder of every subsite under a specified Web site. If a file of the same name already exists, the Add method throws an exception.

using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
{
    using(SPWeb oWebsite = oSiteCollection.AllWebs["MyWebSite"])
    {
        SPWebCollection collWebsites = oWebsite.Webs;
        SPFile oFile = oWebsite.GetFile("MyDocLib/MyFile");
        foreach (SPWeb oWebsiteNext in collWebsites)
        {
            SPFolder oFolder = oWebsiteNext.GetFolder("Shared Documents");
            SPFileCollection collFiles = oFolder.Files;

            string strDestUrl = oFolder.Url + "/" + oFile.Name;
            byte[] binFile = oFile.OpenBinary();
            collFiles.Add(strDestUrl, binFile);

            oWebsiteNext.Dispose();
        }
    }
}
