Link PDF files
For each record there could be more then one pdf file. I would like to automate the process as much as possible. The pdf file would exist on a network drive and the user would need to go to their record in Access and then link the pdf files.
I started but am having problems with Access not opening the pdf file, it will open word files but not pdf,
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have a DB in the same directory and the ID of my data is equal the pdf document.
My question is how can I create a dinamic link in the form to view a PDF file? Like this: I find an client for your ID: 12345. In the form with more details from "12345" I have a button that is a link to PB_12345.pdf. I know that I can make one by one, but I have a lot of IDs
So far I've not been able to make the pdf recognize the logo as a hot link. The pdf willrecognize a URL string as a hot link.
My issue is that in linking I open the “Insert Hyperlink” window, click on the “File” button, which opens a “Link to File” window. The default that is in the box “Files of type” is Office Files.
For every link I have to change it to “All Files (*.*)” and it would save me so much time for the default to be “All Files (*.*)”. Is there any way tochange the default for this?
Once a report opens we touch our PDF icon on our tool bar(I believe this was downloaded). Then it saves to PDF as if it was printing( I guess this is the norm since we have PDF printer setup.
I would like to save(pdf format) and print theses reports automatically(button) on form.
The name I would like the pdf to be is(reportname-datestamp).
I'm having issues because of the PDF format
My pdfs are located in a folder on the c: drive
All I want to do is open them and display them on the screen, I would then like to email them as an attachment
However, there are 3 links I want every record to display that are unique to that supplier.
These links are PDFs that we have scanned into our system and are sitting in a share folder. Right now I have the buttons hyperlinking to the folder instead of linking it to the actual PDF because for me right now it is a static thing and every record in the form will link to the same place.
Is there a way where I can make these buttons supplier specific and have them link to a different PDF for every record/supplier.
This works fine, and I can choose a relative link (relative to the database) or a direct link (c:\folder\file.docx).
I would like to proceed a bit, and also print the linked files from a button, and preferably without opening the files, Or perhaps, as Windows when right-clicking on af file and click Print (opening the file, print it, and close it again).
Our item master table had a link field that, on click, would open up the PDF drawing files on the system. Unfortunately, the links appear to be setup as "\Drawings\.pdf". Instead of "\\\Database\Drawings\.pdf"
