I have tried linkToItem="TRUE" but it doesn't work on my SP2013 version but LinkToItem="TRUE" does.

Only one issue, the LinkToItem doesn't open the file, it just opens the edit/item screen.

How do I link a column to open the actual document with the selected method in SharePoint(Open in client application/browser). Is there a LinkToFile or something similar I could use?

This is how you get it to work

< ViewFields> < FieldRef Name=”Attachments”/> < FieldRef Name=”LinkTitle”/> < FieldRef Name=”linkThisColumn” ListItemMenu="TRUE" linkToItem="TRUE"/> < FieldRef Name=”data_x0020_column”/> < FieldRef Name=”Another_x0020_column”/> < /ViewFields>
