Web page URL links in Office and PDF's

I have a bit of HTML code that opens a new window at a specificied size

<a href="#" onclick="window.open('your_url_here','mywindow','width=450,height=300,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,s tatus=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,copyhistory=yes,resizable=yes')"> Click Here</a>

Open in new window

The goal is from a PDF to click on a hyperlink and have a pop up web browser of a set size open with the appropriate URL. So can you specific the target size from a PDF and/or Word document? The idea is that I have an office organogram and when clicking on the link for a member of staff  opens there details in a maximized windows at the moment. I want it to open in a window of a set size.

thank you

i have done something very similar in the past.  

The trick for me was to do it in two steps.

1) on my web server I create an ASP page that would accept parameters. This would allow me to have a URL that was a simple link

2) the ASP page would accept the link along with parameters. It processed the request and  open the a pop up page in the desired size and location.the pop page.

I use ASP since I was reading a database to get the desire information. I  basically am passing a UserID/memberID/key to the ASP page to generate the page dynamically.

That not a bad Idea, although I was hoping not to have to use a back end web server. But having thought about it I think this might be the best solution. I can add a new "app" page on the web server that already hold the data that can accept passing the user name as a paramator and from that crate the pop up.

I don't suppose you have the and of the code you made for the page, it is on a windows server but my ASP is limited, so any help getting started would be great.
