how do i add a pdf file to a website?
Hi! I am a beginner web designer who wants to put a link to a pdf file on a website.
I am using Microsoft Expression Web 2007 and have pdf files that I saved from Acrobat 7.
I want the file to open in the acrobat pdf viewer so it can be easily printed.

any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

thanks in advance...

Well if you just link to the file, it will open in adobe reader in the browser:

Code:
<a href="filename.pdf" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

thanks!

funny thing is, i initially did that (before posting) with the pdf file being saved on my desktop and it didnt work so i figured that the process had to be much more involved. once i put i in the website folder it worked fine.
