    IE save disabling on documents

    This may sound silly but I just posted a protected pdf document on our web site.

    I was wondering how I can stop people to save the .pdf document.

    In IE everytime I click on the link to view the pdf it will ask me to Open or Save.
    How can I stop IE from asking I just want them to view it?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Don't put it online? If you don't want it saved then put it in a password protected folder where only you know the password.

    Don't think this is possible.

    PDF's aren't designed for web viewing - in fact, most sites would do well to do the opposite of what you want to do (ie, force the user to save the document and not allow them to view it online, which is possible).

    If you only want a user to view the document online, then you should put it in a format designed for online viewing - HTML.
