    done? 

    Direct from director lingo help:
    open {whichDoent with} whichApplication Description


    Command; launches the application specified by the string whichApplication.
    Use whichDoent to specify a doent that the application opens when it
    is launched. When either is in a different folder than the current movie,
    you must specify the full pathname to the file or files.

    The computer must have enough memory to run both Director and other
    applications at the same time.

    This is a very simple command for opening an application or a doent
    within an application. For more control, look at options available in
    third-party Xtra extensions.

    or, you can use buddyapi -------

    OpenFile

    Description: baOpenFile opens a doent, using the program that the file is
    associated with.

    Usage: Result = baOpenFile( FileName , State )

    you can use the open({stringDocPath,} stringAppPath) function (see the help
    text).

    Or you could use the openFIle() fucntion of the FileIO Xtra

    Or you could use the Buddy API Xtra.

    Depends on exacxtly what you are tyring to do.
