    Issues with linking to PDF file

    I have an intranet site I maintain for my company. One of the pages links to PDF reports that update twice a day, with the website linking directly to the PDF file. The issue I am running into is users are leaving the report up and the file is locked preventing the report from being updated. Is there a way to open the file without locking the file from being updated? I want them to be able to view the file in their browser so having them download the file straight up is something I'd like to avoid. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I hope it will fix your problem:

    Here's How:

    Create your PDF file using Adobe Acrobat or other PDF printer.
    Upload your PDF file to your hosting server. If you have a lot of PDF files, it's best to keep them in a separate directory from your HTML files.

    Link to your PDF file as you would any other file:
    <a href="acrobat_file.pdf">pdf file</a>
    Your Welcome If the problem is fixed
