listing a list files from a folder in a field

Post

Hi Group 

 

is it possible to display a list files from a folder (in a windows environment) in a field?

the files will be cad files, image files, text files, spreadsheet files etc.. (basically any and every file in the folder), the idea is to list the file names and extensions And if the listed file could be a clickable hyperlink to open the file that would be perfect. 

 

This is for a job booking database, the main record has a unique number attached and the folder has the same unique number, so the idea being that when you are in a record the folder listing field will display any files it has linked to the record number. 

 

Regards 

Fluffy
