Opening .pdf on sharepoint....

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am running Sharepoint 2010 on Office 365.  We have a library of .pdf files and earlier today I was able to click on the title and open it just fine.  Now tonight I am getting this error:

    "There was an
    error opening this document. The filename, directory name, or volume label
    syntax is incorrect." 

    I am not the only user that is now getting this error.  What could have changed?

    Thanks

    Michelle

  • Hi Michelle,

    Some of the points that you need to consider around the PDF update

    1. The PDF's Open in browser only in Internal SharePoint sites. If the PDFs are located in document library for your public-facing website, you will not be able to open them using Internet Explorer.

    2. Make sure your Internet Options is not set too high.

    3. IF your trying to open the PDF which is attached to the list item while using Internet Explorer, it is not going to work. When using Internet Explorer, the functionality is strictly for SharePoint Online Document Libraries.

    4. If you still got issues try using Adobe Reader 10.1.2. UnInstall your current version and Install install Adobe Reader 10.1.2.
