# \useexternaldocument

## Syntax

 \useexternaldocument[...][...][...] [...] name [...] file [...] text

## Example

Assuming that the file "intermezzo.pdf" is present in the same directory as the document you are typesetting, the following allows you to open the file upon clicking on the link

```\setupinteraction[state=start]
\setupcolors[state=start]

\useexternaldocument[intermezzo.pdf]

\starttext
As one may see in the example \goto{ open the file intermezzo}[file(intermezzo.pdf)].

\stoptext

```

As a matter of fact many other file formats are recognized. It is also possible to give the path of the file to be opened.
