Is there a way to find the name of a file stored in an Open Expternal Container field?

I have a container field that holds PDFs, JPGs and other file types.  The files are stored on an FM 14 Server as Open External records.  I would like to determine the name of the stored file to use for exporting the files to a users local drive.  I have a simple script that exports the container file to disk, but to set the appropriate name I need to use the original file extension (PDF for PDFs, JPG for jpegs, XLS for Excel docs, etc.).  Is there a way to grab the name of the original file or it's extension?  Thanks.
