When you use a hyperlink in an HTML page to open a PDF file to a specific page by using the #page= string, the link opens the first page of the PDF when you click it. (Acrobat 7.x, Acrobat 3D)
- This function worked correctly with previous versions of Acrobat.
- This function works in Mozilla FireFox, but not in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
- You are using a UNC server or local hard drive address for the HTML hyperlink. For example: HREF="\\server\folder\filename.pdf#page=3" or HREF="C:\folder\filename.pdf#page=3"
Do one of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Upgrade to Acrobat 8.0.
-- To purchase an upgrade from Adobe, visit the Adobe Store at http://store.adobe.com/store/ , click Acrobat Family and choose Acrobat 8.0.
-- To locate an authorized reseller, visit the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/store/customerregistration/other_places.jhtml .
Solution 2: Use a named destination.
If you are using a UNC server address in the hyperlink (\\server\folder\), then use a named destination for the page number. For more information, see document 317300 , "Link from an HTML page to a specific page in PDF file (Acrobat 7.x, Acrobat 3D)".
Solution 3: Use a different web browser.
If you are using a local hard drive address in the hyperlink (c:\folder\folder\), then use Mozilla FireFox web browser instead of Microsoft Internet Explorer. For more information on Mozilla FireFox, see the Mozilla website at www.mozilla.com/firefox/ .
In Acrobat 7.0, the intergration path between Microsoft Internet Explorer and Adobe Acrobat products was changed. Unfortunately, those changes affected how Microsoft Internet Explorer sends string information to the Acrobat browser plug-in specifically when using server or local file URLs.
