Any way to set up container fields to have multiple files?

Post

We are converting our system from a Bento database to a Filemaker database. One thing that was really nice about the Bento database, that Filemaker seems to be lacking, is the fact that we can't get a container field associated with a particular record to link or contain, more than one file. Bento was really nice in that it let you link more than one file, and you could quick look each one and open them if necessary - though it was only an alias - it was perfect for our applications. Is there anyway to modify a container field, or create a new field/way to be able to:

- Have more than one file link as an alias to a record?

- Be able to open the file via some button or field in that record's layout? 

- Quicklook any of those associated files?

Thanks.
