I have added a column of type URL to my list. The column stores the URLs to files located in the document library on the same site. So, when I view the properties of my list item I can click on the URL which opens the file from the document library.
The problem that I have is that when I click the URL, I am offered to open or save the file by Internet Explorer. If I choose to open it, it opens (in Word), but it's in read-only mode. I want to achieve the same effect as if I clicked the file name to open it from the document library. Right now, Word is not treating that document as it is coming from SharePoint.
What needs to be changed in order to be able to open the document and to edit it?
