I do not think you will be able to launch a file that is on your local machine but if the file is on a web server then you could use the app.launchURL("Place URL here", boolean). The boolean indicates whether to create a new browser window or use the same one. If you use a new browser window then the user would have to close it to come back or simply switch windows.
Hope that helps
What if the other file is located within a portfolio that has both the original file and the file with references.
Would that act as a bridge so that the link from file to file would be possible?

If it is in a portfolio then there should be options in the UI to load the file. Plus switching back and forth is much easier.
Thanks for the advice Paul
