Form button for end users to launch documents

I have a form that I have embedded a wordpro 9.5 document into. This I have set up to use NotesFX. No problems.
I want to include a button on the form that will launch this document. I know doubleclicking the object works ,but I want a button for endusers. I have tried Command openobject to no avail and played around with object handles etc. This must be easy, but it is not! The object is embedded as an icon.

Try to create a NEW form that has an Auto-Launch property appropriate to launch the embedded object. You can then have your button perform a view-switch-form @Command that will cause the auto-launch behaviour you desire.
