Hi Steve,

Thanks for replying. I have a desktop application and opening the pdf using a Browser is not an option

Would be great, if you could direct me as to how to the same for a desktop application.

I tried Process.Start(path of pdf)

It brings up the pdf fine, but the form comes up without data. Please see my related post

I thought maybe I was opening the form wrong...hence I created this post seperately.

I will be really grateful for any help with either of these posts as I have been struggling with them for more than a week now

Best regards
