Hey guys,

I want to be able to let someone download a pdf document automatically. At the moment the pdf opens in their web browser. How can I automatically download it as if the user right clicked the link and chose 'save as' ??

thanks for your time...

Does your web host allow a server side language like php?

The asp.net method requires like 50 lines of code. You could just put the file in a zip file.

I always thought that Adobe (when you create a .pdf file) has an option
to "open automatically". I could be wrong...
