Hi Roy!

The URL works in internet files, like as local Files.

The only exception is if you want publish your PDF to the Web. In these case, you need publish your file on something Drive Cloud.

Re: How to access PDF files from local maching via URL link

Hi Sandeep,

I wonder if you solved your URL Link problem? I as well am trying to put some URLS into a table as links to open PDf files and I can't figure out what the URL format has to be. I've tried with localhost:80 and File:// and using shares as well. This is on a QlikSense Server.

Thanks for any ideas you have,
Pam

Hi Pamela,

The Qlik sense must have access to that place where you have kept the PDF file or location(your local machine or server machine or ftp server etc)

In my case PDF files were stored in ftp server which was later opened for access and then it works fine. I used normal http://ftpservernameSmiley Tongueort/pathname/abc.pdf.

May be in your case for qlik sense serve, you can check in the chrome browser console to check the error after you click on the link.
