Hyperlinks for Adobe

Hyperlinks for Adobe

(OP)
I have a PDF file that I created from an Xcelsius file. I would like to take that PDF file and create a hyperlink so that I can add it to our company's website. How would I go about doing that?

RE: Hyperlinks for Adobe

Hmm... actually, you're saying you want to put your PDF file on your website? Well, that will depend upon what is/was used to build your site. If you're using SharePoint.

So, GoodDwayne, please clarify: Do you mean you want to put the PDF on a website, so folks can download/open it from there?

Please explain what it is you're wanting to do. I posted basically the same thing where you initially asked the question, here:

Basically I created a dashboard in Xcelsius and exported the Xcelsius file in a PDF file. Now I would like to create that file into a hyperlink and put in on our NOC webiste to be viewed by upper mgmt in the NOC.

I have another question....I was able to create the .swf extension file from Xcelsius into an HTML. Can I use that and create a hyperlink to bput on the NOC website?

RE: Hyperlinks for Adobe

You're still at the same place, and possibly a MORE complicated place than with the PDF. As I mentioned in your other post of this same question: You need to talk to your internal folks. You need to find out how to upload files/docs to your company website/Intranet.

No you don't.
An HTML is nothing but a formatted document. A page displaying formatted text. You may have links in there but these are mere pointers to files which can be located anywhere. Be assured: you don't have ANY files at all in your HTML.
That's what a link is: it is a pointer, pointing to the physical file - it is not the file itself. This is why you cannot convert a file to a link! The file stays. You create a link that points directly at the file. The file itself is located at an accessible spot - but never in the HTML, let alone in a link!


Does that help?

Whom have you talked to within your organization? If your organization has a website, and you need to put a file on it, then surely SOMEONE knows how to do it. Someone did after all have to build the site. poke
