One way to 'link' to files, folders, etc. in iWork documents
Authored by: PizzaCake on Apr 17, '08 10:01:31AM

Forgot to mention if you want to directly link to a file:

Set up a keyboard shortcut for Services » Open URL. Go to System Preferences » Keyboard & Mouse » Keyboard Shortcuts, and add a keyboard shortcut as follows:
Application: All Applications
Menu Title: Open URL
Keyboard Shortcut: Your choice

Examples:

• Link to root
Type in 'file://localhost/' in your document
To open root, select the text 'file://localhost/' and either enter the keyboard shortcut for Services » Open URL or navigate to the Services menu then to Open URL.

• Link to your documents folder
file://localhost/users/yourusername/documents/

• Link to Mail Application
file://localhost/Applications/Mail.app/

I like to use the spotlight criteria method for situations like linking to multiple files or where the file may not exist yet e.g. a future email response - kind:message re:next tuesday

p.s. You can use these techniques in non iWork apps.
