It is probably not (yet?) a widely implemented standard:

I have not noticed the file tag in the past, and I am not sure it is contained 
in the official bibtex format definition. I have not seen bibtex/pdflatex 
itself creating links in the pdf.

I did a google search to find out more (bibtex and file is not a good search 
term :-( ), but the jabref page does not say a whole lot:


Also bibtex.org does not allow a conclusion:

"There is a set of standard-tags existing, which can be interpreted by BibTeX 
or third-party tools. Those which are unknown are ignored by BibTeX, thus can 
be used to store additional information without interfering with the final 
outcome of a document."

I did a post on jabref-users to get more insight.

Thanks, that sounds great (I was not sure if you parse the bibtex file 
yourself or if you use some bibtex output and do not even get the field).
