I have a link on a page to a pdf file i created so the user can open the file print it and then close it.
Other PDF files open fine, but with the one I created internet explorer, shows an error. It may have something to do with active content in the file or the way it was created. But even when I create a blank PDF file I still get the error message. Pre existing 3rd party PDF files work fine.
"To help protect your security, internet explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..."

how do I stop this message from displaying before the file is opened in acrobat? in another window?


I have a page with a selection of documents to print.

what would someone suggest be the best format for the documents. i.e. open using adobe acrobat pdf file in seperate window. would forms be better? MS word documents or does dream weaver have something specific for this??

thanks for any help (very bewbie)

You can't, except by modifying proprietary Windows code. It's a browser feature that you can't bypass.
