Hi, how do I make a link that when clicked, downloads a pdf. file to the users machine? (After asking them, of course :D )
Thanks, Jakebushnell@aol.com

same way you'd make a normal link.

<a href="file.pdf">Download a PDF file</a>

All what happens is it opens the pdf file using my acrobat reader. I want to be able to down load it to my HD with out bringing it up on the screen, kinda like when you download an exe.
Heres the URL if you want to check it out: http://www.nathhan.com/downloads.htm
Thanks again, Jakebushnell@aol.com

you'd have to zip the file (using winzip or whatever) and then give instructions to unzip the file and open it.
