Opening a PDF in Sharepoint
Posted on 2011-05-13
We are running Sharepoint 2010 and have multiple sites under the main site - for each of our departments. They are all running under the same location/site in IIS. We have PDFs loaded into our document libraries. On some of the sites, the PDFs open and view fine - while others force you to Save the file when opening. I know that changing the Web Application option from Strict to Permissive should do the trick because I did this when we first installed to get it to work - and it was fine. What I can't figure out is why some of these sub-sites will open PDFs and others will not - when this is a global setting. I'm not extremely skilled in the Sharepoint setup - so I may be missing something easy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
