Containers and opening word docs

I have a container and store lots of documents such as PDF's images , word docs and PowerPoint files.

 

Ideally I would like to script a button and open the file to view and edit.

PDF's and images I can just export to temp then view no problem.

With word docs and powerpoints this is ok to view, but if I edit, the changes are not saved.

I am saving all files externally and not encrypted.

I think i can set a variable that identifies the path and use open URL which I think should work (haven't tested it properly yet) but thought there may be an easier way.

 

Thanks for any guidance

 

David
