How to open a database on the server

I have a procedure that uses the server to grab some data from another file on the server. I dont have this file open locally. Sometimes that file is not open on the server and the procedure fails. How can I open a file on the server? I have tried “openfile FILE” but it actually opens the file visibly on the server. It seems to me that is not the way it is supposed to do it. It is on 10.2.b12 build (3575). I have not upgraded yet.

At the moment it is not possible to open a file manually on the server. For now, the only solution is to configure the file to open automatically when the server starts up, then it will always be open.
