Hi,
I have a proprietary PDF document that I want only customers to be able to download after they log in and get to the download page.  I know I can just use an HTML link to the the pdf document location on our site - but this displays in the HTML source and would be accessable by everyone who saw that.

Is there a Coldfusion technique to at least hide the link to the document?  Any other suggestions.?

Thanks in advance,
hefterr

Hi SidFishes,
Thanks!  I think I will go with the more simplistic solution (your first).
