Mike: 老板,    这 是   您    要   的   文件。

         Sir, here are the documents you wanted.


The word “着 (zhe)” here is a dynamic auxiliary word. When used after a verb, the auxiliary “着 (zhe)” acts like the -ing ending in English; it creates the present participle. The expression “开着” in the conversation shows that the door is open.

Mèimei zài chuángshang tǎngzhe.
