Hi All

For some time now, I have been using the following code to open an htlm help file at a certain point

CODE

<a href="LawnHelp.htm#updatehistory" target="_blank">What's New</a> 

I have now, for various reasons, converted this to a PDF file which I have uploaded. I now use the following code.

CODE

<a href="LawnHelp.pdf#updatehistory" target="_blank">What's New</a> 
and also tried

CODE

<a href="LawnHelp.pdf#nameddest=updatehistory" target="_blank">What's New</a> 
and

CODE

<a href="LawnHelp.pdf#page=4" target="_blank">What's New</a> 

My problem is that the PDF file always opens at the beginning!

Any ideas?

RE: Viewing PDF files

For what it's worth, the syntax used here "<a href="LawnHelp.pdf#page=4" target="_blank">What's New</a>" works fine for me. I would try a different PDF, or try from a different computer or browser.

Hi

I am currently running under win 8 pro, using i.e. 10, but I have also tried using XP with chrome and other browsers. My PDF file was created using Word 2007 and saved as a PDF. Once I have opened the above file, all hyperlinks work and I can jump to "updatehistory" as shown above.

I am calling it from an ASP page, and thought it was the way I was calling.

Anything following the fragment marker (#) is processed by the browser.
