URL/hyperlink - Adobe Print forms

Hi,

We are on ECC 5.0, Adobe Designer 7.0

Can anyone tell me how to put in URL/hyperlinks in Adobe print forms so that once the output is ready, users can click on it to open other PDF files/Internet sites.

Ex 1.

In Summary invoice, we have list of invoices.

The individual invoices are stored on the document server as PDFs.

Once we generate the commercial invoice output PDF, we would like to have the individual invoices to be hyperlinks.

That way, users can click on them to open the individual invoice. If possible, we would like this to be a relative link.

We tricked this to work in SAPscript.

It worked until the later releases for Adobe reader started prepending 'http://' to the relative hyperlink that calls an .asp page

Ex 2.

Depending on company code, show company name as hyperlink and point hyperlink to respective URL.

If company code A, hyperlink should open 'http://www.a.com' elseif B, open 'http://www.b.com' etc.

Hope this can be done.

Thank you.

Best regards,

-Ramesh

      Thanks Markus.

      It was just as I guessed.

      For Print to paper/fax, I can understand the reason behind not having a URL field.

      If we are to email the generated PDF output, then it is a different story and it is there that I was surprised

      that Adobe did not provide anything.

      I will tell my client that we cannot have hyperlinks in printforms until Adobe comes

      up with something in the future.

      Thank you.

      Best regards,

      -Ramesh
