Basically I'm redesigning our current database layout. I'm looking at having an attachment field so users can enter the full* file path and the file will open upon clicking the link. Eg if a user sends a quotation or letter, they can paste in the full* file name and click on the link to open it. Obviously the link would be updated by the user as different versions of the file become available. Is this possible?
* I say "full file path" but if it would be possible to predefine a fixed directory and then the user just enters, say, the FILE NAME then that would be even better.
Cheers in advance,

10 years ago.... going back abit eh! haha. If you could provide me with any resources/links/code snippets then I would be really grateful. I've searched everywhere possible and still not found the answer I'm looking for.

The main issue I need to overcome is that 99% of the end users wouldn't be able to locate the file or know it's extension . That's why I queried if it would be possible to put just the file name (they would know that when saving it).
If this doesn't seem possible, then would it be possible to link to an item that's been saved in the history list.

That was the first thing I checked
But that's not what I need to know. It's not about how to attach a file (the standard way). It's how to link to an attached file. I'm trying to do it through the use of a URL field, but trying to make it as simple as possible.
