Why not create a PDF and email it to them as an attachment? That way they could have the PDF open and browser on something else? Don't know if that works for you or not. We do that a lot and users like it. But we also know their email from their cookie at sign on. -----Original Message----- From: web400-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:web400-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Ricky Thompson Sent: Thursday, April 21, 2005 10:54 AM To: web400@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [WEB400] Pushing a PDF file with CGIDEV2 Can I push a PDF file out to a web browser? I wrote the following RPG program thinking it would work but I get garbage. We are wanting to dynamically produce the PDF and then push to the user. The main reason I wanted to push it out was so that I could delete the PDF as soon as they are done.
