microsoft access web browser control value from text box

I am trying to use the  Microsoft Web Browser control to load a single page pdf file onto an MS Access form.  The network address for the pdf file will be contained in a TextBox field on the form.

I've set up a command button to point the Web Browser control at the file address contained in the text box via the code below.

This does indeed display the pdf file on the form, but opens up  the full Adobe Acrobat program.  While this is nice for a multi-paged document, I really just need a full-frame view on my single-page  pdf's.

How do I accomplish this?

I don't think so.

Even if you use the Adobe PDF control in Access, it still displays the PDF exactly as the webbrowser. (with all the Adobe "Tools" all around it)

Perhaps you could try one of the many other PDF controls available:
