Don,

Why don't you just create a link directly to the PDF file instead of
your intermediate page?

Subject: [WEB400] ND Macro screen elimination

I have this macro which ends up displaying a .pdf file. The search
index is on the System i. The users are not happy with the extra
"click" step (anchor) which is now needed. Is there a way to eliminate
that extra step and go directly to the .pdf display?

1) There is a keyword search field entered

2) The System i index is searched and all "matches" are displayed.

3) User clicks on the record # of the match for which they want to
see the actual .pdf

4) Anchor screen comes up and user must click it again before the
.pdf shows - this is what they want eliminated.

Example:

Rec# Invoice Identification
0004 Badger Metals 10450 52499.pdf
0109 Inside Badger 13070 0038727-IN.pdf


User then clicks on the one he wants ...

and this "extra" step comes up:

VIEW the A/P Invoice for ... Badger Metals 10450 52499.pdf <J:\Badger
Rubber Company 10450 52499.pdf> When above is clicked, the .pdf
appears.
