If you are always only going to have that one file in the folder you can use this

$doc = FileFindFirstFile("*.doc")  
$doc = FileFindNextFile($doc) 

alternatively if you put the .doc in a folder use can use it like this:

$thefolder = "foldername"

$doc = FileFindFirstFile($thefolder & "\*.doc")  
$doc = FileFindNextFile($doc) 
ShellExecute($thefolder & "\" & $doc)

If you need to open more files or further define the search you can just expand on this.

edit: added folder thingy
