    Default Force PDF to download

    Hi, currently when I use Action Javascript to open a report - it opens the report within IE in Acrobat reader. How can I force IE to prompt the user to download the PDF rather than open within IE?

    thanks guys!

    Not 100% sure but there used to be a setting in Acrobat Reader itself

    I fixed this problem by using the File Download Action Javascript and using a Custom XBASIC function which saves the file to my drive and then FileDownload ajax function.
