Hello all,

I have some problems on SharePoint 2007. In one of my sites I created a document library and in it i created some folders and they contain PDF files.

I try to open the folder and nothing happens but if i open them in explorer view (Actions>Open in explorer view) i can open the folders and view these PDF.

Any idea what the problem is?

I had various issues with PDF in Share Point and when I'd installed the ifilter for pdf files it fixed it up.

Have a read through this
