Topic: Linking to specific PDF page in IE6
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 114011
From: ted_thompson61

I am trying to link to specific pages of a PDF document from an HTML document. Previously under IE5 this worked as documented using a javascript and the syntax:


I am using local files and not the http syntax. I have been told that this was never SUPPOSED to work except for the served pages via HTTP which it does.

I have upgraded to Reader 6.0.2 and still no luck.

Does anyone know of a workaround? Perhaps opening the document from a javascript library or using DDE or something???

I have seen numerous posts on many PDF forums about this same problem. I would think Adobe would be addressing it, but have not heard anything like this from their tech support. I have also filed a "Feature Request" with Adobe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
