That's true, but I still don't know how can I store the path to the file.

If in the file field I store just the file name, I need to create a second
column just for storing the random path for each file upload field.

If I will store the random path and the file name in the same column like
/e3/e3434ae1b/The original file name.pdf

then each time I would need to create a subroutine that takes this file name
and gets only the original file name for printing it on the page, but I 
think this is the most simple way though.
