Re: Button to open document in pdf

Hello Petter,

I do what you say me but it's not running.

A message say me : "the document is not here or it was deleted or renamed".
My file is on the server in this adress : C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Documents\fichiers

So when I create the url I write : http://myserver/Documents/fichiers/myPDFfile.pdf

Is it right ?

Thanks a lot

Hi,

Petter solution is right on the money. However, I want to warn you that there is a bug that will stop this from working correctly. What release are you running.

Thanks for your response.

HI,

That is a very old version released 3 years ago. I am not sure if it will work with that release.

Did you create a virtual folder in the Webserver to store the PDF in?
