Re: Macro to open pdf file

Similarly we can write this script:

FUNCTION OpenPdf
set app = ActiveDocument.GetApplication
app.Launch "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe", "file path"
END FUNCTION

Hi wishes29,

Yes you can...

But remember avoid macros, if you can achieve the same using triggers.

Thanks,
