characters. Here is my code and please let me know if I am making any
mistake. The client machine has Adobe ACrobat (Full version installed)

FileName = "c:\1.pdf"
Set objFSO = Server.CreateOb ject("Scripting .FileSystemObje ct")
Set objTS = objFSO.OpenText File(FileName)

NameFile=Right( FileName,Len(Fi leName)-InstrRev(FileNa me,"\"))

Response.Conten tType = "applicatio n/pdf"

Response.Buffer = True
Do While Not objTS.AtEndOfSt ream
strChunk = objTS.Read(32)
