    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.
