Open PDF

P: 3
On my form I would like to be able to open a PDF file with a button. The form is MainData and the PDF file would be the current record on the form (TicketNum). I checked the forum and found instructions on how to do it but it doesnt seem to be working. ( )

Can anyone tell me how to incorporate this into my DB?

Well, the easiest way to open a file on your hard drive would be the following:

1. Create a button
2. Set the HyperlinkAddress property for the button to the name of the file.

You can set this link to point to an object in the current database or a file outside the database.

Thats it.

I tried the button route. As the ticketnum changes, I would need to properties on the button to change as well.

Actually I figured out how to do it. It's not pretty but it works! :)

Good deal.

I have actually been mulling over this but have not had a chance to implement any ideas to test a solution. Do you mind sharing how you got this to work?
