I call up notepad.exe to open the file :
$$COMMAND = 'GUI ASYNC notepad c:\ftype.txt'
#A = SYSTEM($$COMMAND)
The above works to open the local text file with Notepad.
The following doesn't work as I don't have any idea what to put in for ???:
#A = DDE_REQUEST('NOTEPAD','c:\ftype.txt','???',$$VALUE)
Is there a way to use ALIAS() to read from my local drive?

Once the file is on the server you can use ALIAS() to read it in.

CLIENT.GET and CLIENT.SEND move a file from the server to the client. CLIENT.PUT and CLIENT.RECEIVE move a file from the client to the server. Once a file is on the server, you can use ALIAS to read it or CLIENT.EXECUTE and execute a program against it.
These commands (except for ALIAS) are only available in 5.5.
