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:

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