Posted 31 Jul 2014Most folks considered the goal of the Space Race to be the first to the Moon...which the US won. Most people don't recall the Soviets even having a manned moon mission planned but they did. They started late, officially denied they were even trying and eventually cancelled two secret programs due to the Americans beating them to a couple of milestones as well as some disasters with a heavy lift rocket they were developing to support their manned moon program.
It was even officially admitted to until after the Soviet Union collapsed and old communist era records were opened. Basically, the Soviets would have liked nothing more than to have beaten Americans to Kennedy's stated goal of landing a man on the moon before 1970 but they were afraid their late start and emphasis on earth orbital missions left them in an inferior position to compete...so they always denied they were even considering it.
Fun fact: in their lander design, much was the same as what the Americans eventually came up with. The Soviet model though, when rendevousing with the lunar orbiter after blasting off from the Moon, had the two cosmonauts not docking with the orbiter but spacewalking to it. Their model never had the lander redocking with the orbiter...they expected the cosmonauts to go for a space stroll and lug their moon rocks with them.
Posted 31 Jul 2014Indeed it would.
I'm wanting to keep this simpler pending what the OP comes back with.
Posted 31 Jul 2014That would work fine on a destination page of a link click. It'd have to be a .cfm that gets clicked to which in turn embeds the .pdf into a page.
Posted 31 Jul 2014Indeed. Sorry about that. I looked at that message on my cell and didn't even see the code example.
The error you mentioned isn't the same as the original code you posted. There was no cfinclude in your original post (the one where you asked how to get a .pdf to fire into a new window when the link to it is clicked). The error is a different animal altogether and appears to be unrelated.
As _wolfshade_ mentioned, you're appending a ".cfm" to whatever the variable for "page" contains. If that is supposed to be the file name and/or path to the .pdf then doing it via an include won't work.
Perhaps we need to start over from the beginning. Tell us now what kind of issue you're having, if there is an error please supply the pertinent details of the error message and, if possible, include the code page for where the error message is telling you the error resides.
We'll see what we can do.
And once you are looking for someone who knows CF, mention it here as well.
Posted 30 Jul 2014Oh. Okay. That is an error that means the .pdf doesn't exist in the directory you specified.
To fix it you just need to make sure the file is in that folder on the server.
