through all the elements of the doc libs ? Also, is there any call

The URL for the document  tells everything. It looks a little like this.:
The domain name, the site  name, the document library  name, the sub
folder names, the document name.

If you what to get the document item  though the object model. Look at
this sample code.

string docUrl = "[the document url]";
SPSite site = new SPSite(docUrl);
SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();

string folderUrl = docUrl.Substring(web.Url.Length+1);
SPFile file = web.GetFile(folderUrl);
SPListItem item = file.Item;

Context.Response.Write("<p>Item ID "+ item.ID +"<p>");
