I have a container field that stores .doc and .pdf files.

Is there any way the client can open those docs when he doubleclick on it

Right now I can only export the file and then open it.

It depends how they have been stored, as imported files or as OLE objects. in the later case, double click with launch the app with the file while the first won't.
