how to link to audio files in base

I am creating a database to catalog about 10,000 audio files. I'd like to link to each of them from somewhere in the database. I'd like to include a link that is clickable that will open the file. I also read a little about the native media player, but am unsure if this works with base. I have also tried to insert a link through the "insert" menu, but the audio/video option is grayed out.

What am I doing wrong?

I have used a button on a form to run a macro that will take a file name from a field displayed from the table and run my default sound player application on it. It is very similar to the comment above.

See the BASIC RunApp() command, also
