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' ...

Spoiler alert! This method was mentioned in one of the top Google finds after using the keywords in my answer. :)

I know, but I found that the current answers were a little bit misleading, as they erroneously tend to SM49/SM69 because of the words ("external program".

Agreed. The general keywords bring up all kinds of information, some may not be relevant.
