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.
