Your search results would look something like this:

Rec# Invoice Indentifcation
0004 <a href="J:\Aerofast Inc 10108 00128373.pdf">Badger Metals 10450
0109 <a href="J:\Inside Badger 13070 0038727-IN.pdf">Inside Badger 13070

You may need to escape the spaces in the file path.

OK, men, I got this far with code elimination - but what am I missing to
actually get the .pdf to show?

This is in the browser now - J:\Aerofast Inc 10108 00128373.pdf -
do I need to precede it with the adobe executable path?

I don't know if I am oversimplifying, but why not have each item in the
search results be a link to the corresponding PDF and eliminate the
"click here" screen?

[WEB400] ND Macro screen

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

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

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


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
