Embedding Pdf files

Recommended Posts

What would be a good way to allow my database users to access various Pdf forms via the database that they could then print out for later use? Would I place the document in a container field or is there a more effcient method?

You could store it in a container field but then the database size will grow a lot if there are lots of files that you embed. You could also store the files on a network drive accessible to everyone and then store it as a reference only in a container field.

The method I've liked better than that is either to use a web viewer or just Open URL to view pdfs stored on a web server. You can script uploading them to the web server and naming them with names including record serial numbers so that you can have them linked to the record.

If you don't have intricate privilege sets where some people should be able to only see certain pdfs, then this might be an option.
