Launching an attachment via browser - URGENT

Hi!

I've a database that is run on the Web that allows a user to create new forms. User is also able to attach an attachment(usually Word doc) to the form.

The question is, how am I able to launch the attached attachment upon user clicking on the new document link WITHOUT going into the document itself?

Thanks!

Create a view in wich a column has this big formula:
@If(@Attachments;"[<!-- "+@AttachmentNames+" --><A REF=/"
+@Subset(@DbName;-1)+"/AllDocs/"
+@Text(@DocumentUniqueID)+"/$FILE/"+@AttachmentNames+">"
+@AttachmentNames+"   "+@Text(@AttachmentLengths) +" Bytes </A>]" ;
"[<!-- "+@AttachmentNames+" -->"+@AttachmentNames+"</h7>]")

Please note:
- You nead a view with sorted docids in the FIRST column, in example is this "AllDocs".
- HTML comments <!-- --> are only for sorting purpose in the upper string.
- Only for optics is the attachments lengths contained in the anchor name (get it out)
- </h7> is only because I had no better idea for closing pass trough breckets ].
- If you want, you can compute all this values on saving the attachments in the form.
When you precalculate the strings is your view faster built containing only var names

It works great. You click in the view on attachment name and get the attachment.
