I don't understand your question.  If it is a PDF file with a '*.pdf' extension, then it should open in the browser when clicked if the Adobe Reader plugin is installed in your browser.  Otherwise, clicking on the link should ask if you want to download the file.

Its not happening. I m getting the hyperlink, but file is not getting opened or download.
*.pdf means the files are only of pdf files.

Please show me the hyperlink in the "View Source" of your browser.  I ask for that because that is what the browser sees, not your ASP code above.

If this file 'AAAAK5389F_FORM16A_2012-13_Q2.pdf' is in the same directory as the web page, then it should open or download.  If instead it is in another directory like "Files/", then the link needs to be href="Files/AAAAK5389F_FORM16A_2012-13_Q2.pdf".
