Adobe (said it was a browser problem) and MS (said it was an Adobe problem). One customer has a website and serves many pdf files from the ifs each day.Adobe does have a "feature" to display the pdf within the browser page. I always have users turn this preference off because of the blank pages. Then Adobe will display the pdf in a new window, and that always works. Every new update from Adobe seems to set that preference back to the default. I have seen the display within the page work, but it seems to only
work for a very narrow match of Adobe Reader release level & IE level.Also, having multiple versions of Adobe on same pc is unstable (to me), and downloading a new copy of reader does not uninstall old versions. Have not explored the problem in last 2 years so don't know if Adobe/MS ever resolved this. We stick to the recommend to
change the preferences. There is a faily active Adobe community online, and I would check there. hth jim franz----- Original Message ----- From: "David Gibbs" <david@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

If I a) Cut and paste the link that is now showing in the browser into the Open dialog of Acrobat then the file isdisplayed correctly. Or b) If I right click on the link and do "Save As" andthen select Open from the download monitor it again opens correctly.I've been mulling over this one for a while ... and I can't think of anything that would cause this. What is serving the PDF? Perhaps the mime type is not setup correctly on the server? david --This is the PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users (PcTech) mailing listTo post a message email: PcTech@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/pctech or email: PcTech-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/pctech.
