Playing .wav container field?

Playing .wav container field?

Playing .wav container field?

I have figured out there seems to be two ways to insert a .wav file into a field. (OS X Tiger / Filemaker 8.5 Pro Advanced)

I can insert a Quicktime container field and direct it to a .wav file and can then click on the field and play the file via the little quicktime controls but unfortunately I don't see the file name displayed via this method.

Alternatively, I can insert a normal container field and link it to a .wav file whereby I see the file name when looking through the records/fields but I can't seem to find a way to play the sound files via this method.

I would like to be able to both see the .wav file name AND play it when I choose.

Can anyone tell me if and how I can do this?
