Launch external files

Hi all.
I'm working in a team using the cvs.
One of the file in the cvs is an excel file, so it is shown in the project tree.
Is there any way to launch it from IntelliJ or should i browse the filesystem in windows and double click on it?
Bye bye, Pinuccio

A little additional explanation: what I'd like to do is to click on the file shown in the project tree in IntelliJ and let it open in Excel, just as if I clicked on the file browsing the filesystem. I don't want to see the Excel file in the IntelliJ editor :)))

Set up an external tool. Select IDE settings, External tools.

See attached for setup

Then you can right click on a file and open it in excel.

In addition to setting your own external tools, check out IntelliJ.org,
you can find pretty cool external tools there (my favorite is opening an
Explorer window with current file (in editor, project tree, etc.) selected.
