Hi Paddy,

   I am developing an LO database and I want to open a PDF document from a
button on a Base Form. I want a button on the form that will open a
specific, different PDF document for each record. I want it to open the
document in the default PDF reader? I have not been able to find anything
to help me. I would appreciate a pointer to where I might be able to find
instructions on how to do this.

This will work with a macro - here a part of it:
oShell = createUnoService("")

It will open the program, which is linked to the type of file.

You could find it in the German Base Handbuch, but the translation into
English isn't finished since a long time ...

You could find a translated version from 1 1/2 years ago  here:
Look for the chapter "Macros".
