Windows File Management


     I have been searching for features in Filemaker that allow access to local files on a windows operating system. My ultimate goal is to create a custom file sorting interface that allows employees to create filters to locate a specific file. The majority of these files will be in PDF format and are named according to an established convention and folder system. 

     Does Filemaker support such features? 

     I plan to accomplish the filtering process by reading the file names as would be done with a CSV. In my case I have named the files with a dash(-) for separation. (e.g. Building - Room - Asset Type - Asset Number)
