Script to open Container document

I have a container that store REFERENCES to files such as Word, Excel, PPT, etc.  We are not storing the actual documents, secure or otherwise, in Filemaker.  If you double click the stored icon, the file automatically opens.  (Or alternatively click the icon and hit the space bar.)  Can this be scripted so that the container does not need to be clicked on, etc.  We would prefer to lock the container once it is loaded.  (The Export Field Contents is not appropriate here as we do not store the content in FMP.)  We do not want to code the opening application as there could be too many so Send Event does not work.  Thoughts?
