A file: URL passed to the Hyperlink command should work fine if you're okay
with specifying an absolute path. Otherwise, you could pass a SystemOpen
command (which is the programmatic way to do this) to a Button styled to look
like a hyperlink. For example,
BaseStyle -> "Hyperlink", Appearance -> None]
where "xxx.doc" would be relative to the path of the notebook itself.
