add a hyperlink column in your webgrid then place the name of pdf in your querystring, you can now open the file using the querystring to validate the filename.

ex.
DataNavigateUrlField="PDFFileName" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="OpenPDFFile.aspx?filename={0}"

I forgot to mention that the .pdf files are on the web server and Acrobat Reader is installed on the client machine.  Is there a way to spawn an instance of acrobat reader on the client machine and open the file from the web server?

The grid is basically a list of statements taht the client browser can view.
