I have a form that contains a Project text field as seen on picture 2. Is it possible to double tap on the number in image 2 and search the file pertaining to the number seen in the 1st image (its a sharepoint site)?

The purpose for this is to download a pdf file that pertains to the searched folder.

    @Lopez, Ahiezer ,

    Since I am not familiar with Microsoft access, from the perspective of SharePoint, we can use BCS indexing connectors to connect to external content that you want to crawl and include in the content index:

    This is very complicated, and you need to develop a custom BCS index connector. For more information, see:
