I am trying to add two web parts to a page:
Content Editor with the html to display a PDF file from a document library
InfoPath Web Part to Update a related list when the user opens the page and clicks submit.

Problem 1: The PDF File doesn't open. Stuck saying "Initializing".   I will include the snippet I used.
Problem 2:  How to get the file name of the PDF file off of the Content Editor html fragment and use that as a parameter for updating the SharePoint List when the user does a submit from the InfoPath Form with the pages InfoPath web part.

The snippet for the PDF file follow:
<object>
        <embed src="/SiteAssets/PM2_manual.pdf" height="850" width="850"  type="application/pdf"></embed>
</object>

Try using a javascript renederer such as http://pdfobject.com/
That is pretty old and possibly not modern standards compliant, so alternatively use one of the many jquery versions:

Any thoughts about how to get the filename of the PDF file from the containing web part within the info path web part?

Thanks (that 's "part 2" of the question).
