How are you viewing the pdf?

Where are the pdf's stored: in the file system or on the database?

Or are you creating a pdf by calling a report?

We stored the PDF docs in the application server(file system), we are trying to open this using forms(web.show_document('link')), but we r getting mentioned error message.

in the when button pressed trigger we have the following code
WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT('/forms/java/guide_basic.pdf', '_blank');

I also use web.show_document().

If the user wants to view the document while in oracle forms, we send the report to cache. So the pdf is created at that time.

If the user wants to save the document to the filesystem, we send the report to file.

If we want to open a pdf that has been stored in the filesystem, we have a java application that opens the pdfs for viewing.

Sorry, I can't offer any more help here.

I tried opening the pdf using rundll32 , using this code
declare
 x boolean;
begin
       x := webutil_file_transfer.as_to_client(file_name ,file_name);			
      client_host('cmd /c rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler C:\word\quick reference.pdf' );
end;


it opened once , then it gave me the same message 'there was a problem reading this document 14'

any solution ?
