Someone had helped me with my original question titled, "Access file with attachment data types" but I now realize I need a little more help.  The individual that helped me supplied a file named "Access-BasicLinkFormReportImages.mdb" which works fine but now I have to somehow make it work with PDF files.  The Access version being used is 2007.

Will it somehow work and what has to be done to change it?

You can't view pdf file in image control, you should use Web browser control (and you need acrobat reader installed). Look at sample
Access-BasicLinkFormReportImages.mdb

Yes, both are adaptations of my basic sample file.

Here is the one I made specifically for PDF's.
You can select "All file Types" from dialog box to select Images, ...etc
...or again, you can modify the code to filter for your specific file types.


Just note that the webbrowser cannot display *All* file types...
As I stated, there is a difference between "Viewing" a file and "opening" it...
