    To add to Volker's answer - when you open a file on PC, you are actually using a feature of the OS. So this task is not really "open a file" but rather "execute an external program".

    Google search for "ABAP open external program site:sap.com" should provide enough food for thought and for further investigation.

    To help you search, the following method opens a file with the default application (I let you find complete answers on the web):

    CALL METHOD cl_abap_frontend_services=>execute EXPORTING operation = 'OPEN' ...
