How do I open portals and related containger fields more easily?

Post

I have created a relational database with a portal and scroll bar that relates both a text field and a container field to another table.  When I am in the "Source" table (with the portal) I want to simply click on the related container field (which has a reference to a PDF, Word document, or Excel file) and have it open, no matter which attached document I select in the portal.  However, unless I have tabbed over from the adjacent field to make the desired one active, I get an error message (see attached screenshot).  How do I make it easier to simply click on the container field and open the attached document without having to click on the adjacent field first THEN tab over?  Thanks!
