Attaching documents to a record

Post

Hello,

 

I'm a beginner using FM9V3 and I could do with a bit of help.

 

Is it possible to attach a document (word or excel) to a record? I'm creating a database which holds students records and the user asked me whether it could be possible to attach reports-type documents to a student record so that she can 1) see there is a document and 2) click on a icon which would then open the document.

 

I thought I'd create a container field and that might do the trick. I can insert the icon of the file but I cannot click on it to open the file.

 

Am I trying to do something that's not possible? Or am I doing it all wrong?

 

Thank you very much for your help.
