    Launch application: Open PDF from URL

    Florian Pennetzdorfer

      I'm trying to create a button that opens a PDF file from an URL.

      How can I force Qlikview to show the file in Adobe Reader rather than Internet Explorer?

       

      I tested 2 approaches:

      • Action "Open URL" --> opens the URL in browser
      • Action "Launch" --> opens Adobe Reader but cannot open the URL

       

      But generally, Adobe Reader is able to open URLs (File > Open > Insert URL works)

       

      Please see the attached qvw (URL = dummy PDF file)

       

      Regards,

      Florian
