Local file reference from hosted file

I need to be able to access data on a local FMG file from a hosted file.

 

Does anyone know what if anything can be entered in the 'External data source' of the hosted file that can achieve this with Go?

 

file: means 'same place the hosted file' in this context so fails as it looks on the server. The normal filemac: seems to fail too. I don't think there is a fileios:

 

At the moment I'm having to ask the user to select the file using 'Files on Device' when the error message comes up saying it cannot locate the file. This is far from elegant.

 

I'm using FMG11

 

TIA
