Opening a file in its relevant app

P: n/a
Hi

I have a field with the full path and name of a document. How can I have the
document open in its associated application; word, excel etc when user
double clicks on the field?

Thanks

Regards

See API: Start an app with ShellExecute
(Q) How do I start the application which is registered to handle a file extension
