Indesign/Acrobat PDF - embedded link file(word, excel, pdf)

In the microsoft word, we can embedd, the pdf, word or excel files as link, so that when you click the embedded file (for eg. if you click the pdf icon of embedded file in word, the pdf file will open, as same as the word files and excel files will open) . There is will no seperate link files will be there. (so from a word doc embedded with pdf files and excel files will be opened from the word itself)
Is there any option to do like this in Indesign or Pdf, where we can embedd the Link files inside the indesign, without linking the files from the hard dirve or server.
Any idea about this? You people understand what i am trying to say?

Acrobat Pro has an Attachements navigation panel that you can add (embed) files that will open in their native application when clicked to open.
InDesign can do something similar... you can embed files via the Links panel... you can also edit original (but you might need to unembed it first.
Not on a computer with InDesign right now, I will check tommorrow.

  • Component to URL link a word/excel/pdf document inside Page

    Hello Experts,
    I would really appreciate if somebody can answer if there are any standard component or functionality available to call a network URL link to a word/excel/pdf document inside a ABOUT tab page for the definition and screenshot of How-to and functionality of the dashboard.
    I am trying to avoid creating a custom component to use SAP UI5 HTML control to initialize a OLE object call to a given URL.

    Well, Word and Excel documents are binary, so you will need a Binary LOB (BLOB).
    I have recently been storing/retrieving BLOBs through ASP/ADO . . .
    BLOBs are limited to 4GB, but ADO has a limit of 2GB. Hopefully, that will not be a problem.
    If you are using ODBC, then be aware that you need to enable LOBs by setting LOB=T in the connection string. If you are using ODBC with stored procedures, then there is a bug that causes the LOBs to be truncated to 32K, which is fixed in A colleague tells me that the Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle works with LONGs but not with LOBs.
    If you are using OleDB with stored procedures, then you'll need to set the "SPPrmsLOB" property to TRUE.
    When uploading BLOBs through ADO, you need to set the parameter size to 1 higher than the actual size, otherwise you get an error.
    When retrieving the BLOBs through stored procedures as OUT parameters, you need to set the parameter size to larger than the BLOB, otherwise it gets truncated. I do not like having to specify 2GB for a file that might only be 32K, so I prefer to return a record set via a REF CURSOR.

  • Opening word, excel, pdf, jpeg files as attachments on iphones

    I've always been able to open word, excel, pdf & jpeg files as attachments on my iphone 5.  But recently, everytime I tried to open one of these, the file image turned up all grey, and in the case of jpeg files, it just kept on loading, loading & loading, but never finished loading ...  It seems like this happened after I updated to IOS 6.1.4 recently...  This is just a guess.  Could anyone help me with this?  Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply. It helped me get to a solution. In essence I needed to copy the Unix file to an internal table and then save it to the end user's PC file. Then I am able to open the document / attachment.
    I created a new function to:
    1) call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>directory_browse,  to ask the end user to pick a PC directory to copy the Unix file attachment to.
    2) Then  using the following code, copy the Unix file (as determined by application or user) to an internal table. Note that the line is not limited by a certain length.
      types: begin of t_tab,
              line type string,
             end of t_tab.
      data: k_wa_itab type t_tab,
            t_it_itab type standard table of t_tab.
    open dataset v_unixfilename for input in binary mode.
      if sy-subrc <> 0.
        raise unix_filename_read_error.
        read dataset v_unixfilename into k_wa_itab-line.
        if sy-subrc <> 0.
        append k_wa_itab to t_it_itab.
      close dataset v_unixfilename.
    3) Using call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>gui_download, save the contents of the internal table to the PC directory from step 1 above.
    4) Open the Attachment from the end users PC via:
    call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>execute
    It seems like a long way to get this to work, but it is working. If there is a better way maybe someone else can fill in the blanks. Ideally a tool to read and open from a file from Unix without using the cl_gui_frontend_services would be ideal.

  • How do I transfer data files (word, Quickbooks, pdf, etc.) to the ipad?

    How do I transfer data files (word, Quickbooks, pdf, etc.) to the ipad for safe store and possible reading and manipulation of some key files (word and Pdf)?

    You first need an app, or apps, that are capable of reading/storing, and possibly editting them - without the app(s) there is nowhere to copy them to. As to how you then get the files onto the iPad depends upon the app(s) that you are using : iBooks (free app which can store/read PDFs) is via iTunes and the Books section of your computer's iTunes library. Other apps can use the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab on your computer's iTunes, some apps have wifi capability so that you can copy to/from them via your wifi network, and you may also be able to transfer email attachments into the app.

  • How do I prevent Acrobat from changing paths to linked files when a PDF is saved locally?

    I'm creating a PDF for internal company use. Each page will include a button to view a video; the videos themselves will be hosted on an internal network drive.
    When I create the button in InDesign, I create an Open File action, browse to the video I want to link to, and it creates (what appears to be) an absolute path to the file. When I export to PDF, the path still appears to be absolute in the button properties, and if I open the PDF directly from its network location, the video button opens the video and works properly.
    If the PDF is sent as an attachment or downloaded from the network and saved locally, however, the video links no longer work. The filepath in the button properties still appears to be absolute, but now points to a local folder ("C:\Users\...")
    I need users to be able to download and save the PDF locally, but I don't want to embed a dozen videos, for obvious reasons. How can I ensure, then, that the filepaths to the videos are truly absolute and will consistently point to the network location no matter where/how the PDF is saved?

    It is relative, but I don't want it to be. The problem is that I don't see any way in either Acrobat or InDesign to specify that it must be absolute.
    It sounds like if I were to keep my working file on a local drive and export from there, it would automatically create an absolute link to the network path, but another designer is also working on the project and needs to be able to access the file. I could also copy the entire working folder to a local drive before exporting each time, or manually update the links in Acrobat from a local copy of the PDF after each export... but these both seem like ridiculous extra steps that shouldn't be necessary.
    Is it really possible that neither program allows the user to control whether a link is relative or absolute? Should I post this in the InDesign forums, though the issue seems to be in Acrobat?

  • Need assistance embedding separate files into a PDF

    I am using Adobe Acrobat X Pro (Version 10.1.2).  I followed the instructions below to try and embed separate Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files into my PDF document as thumbnails, but the only problem is, this only works on my computer because the files are saved on my machine.  As soon as I move my PDF file which contains the links, the links will not open.
    How do I essentially do the same thing but have the thumbnail links be viewable by anyone, no matter their location?
    Create a link using the Link tool
    Choose Tools > Content > Link. The pointer becomes a cross hair, and any existing links in the document, including invisible links, are temporarily visible.
    Drag a rectangle where you want to create a link. This is the area in which the link is active.
    In the Create Link dialog box, choose the options you want for the link appearance.
    Select one of the following link actions: 
    Go To A Page View
    Click Next to set the page number and view magnification you want in the current document or in another document (such as a file attachment), and then click Set Link.
    Open A File
    Select the destination file and click Select. If the file is a PDF, specify how the document should open (for example in a new window or within an existing window), and then click OK. 
    Note: If the filename is too long to fit in the text box, the middle of the name is truncated.
           Open A Web Page
                     Provide the URL of the destination web page.
           Custom Link
                     Click Next to open the Link Properties dialog box. In this dialog box, you can set any action, such as reading an article, or executing a menu command, to be associated with the link.

    Hi George,
    I just tried adding the files as attachments; however I didn't like doing that because it increased the file size of my PDF document quite a bit. 
    I'm not sure if you're familiar with the "Insert Object" command in MS Word, but I want to do the same thing in my PDF document...but the key is, anyone must to be able to open the embedded file from any location.
    I created an MS Word document with several embedded objects.  I was later asked to PDF the Word document, but since embedded MS Word objects do not migrate to the PDF, I am now trying to embed the same files I embedded into my Word document into my PDF document over top of the icon image.  The file types I'm trying to embed include MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Adobe PDF.  Does this make more sense?  I want to create a hyperlink over top the icon image that was PDF'd from the MS Word document which allows any user to click on the link and open the separate file.

  • Acrobat 9 Pro: Links to Word TOC and cross references are lost

    I'm testing Acrobat 9 Pro and while it successfully creates a PDF from Word 2003 with bookmarks, all my TOC and internal page reference links are lost.
    I have triple checked the conversion settings from the Adobe PDF menu option in Word, and the "Convert cross-references and table of contents to links" check box is definitely selected.
    I used the same Word document on another machine with Acrobat 6 Pro installed - and the TOC and cross ref links were created successfully. As far as I can see the Adobe PDF settings in Word 2003 on both machines are the same - the only difference is that one uses Acrobat 6 Pro and the other uses Acrobat 9 Pro.
    The only setting in 9 Pro I turned off was the 'enable accessibility tagging' one; it's also turned off in 6 Pro. The remaining settings are the default.
    A clickable TOC and internal links is essential for my clients who often have 400+ page documents.
    Anybody have any suggestions? Or can anybody confirm that they do/don't get the same behavior in Acrobat 9 Pro?

    Thanks Abhigyan - your test PDF worked fine for me.
    This is what I've done today:
    1. Checked for all instances of pdfm*.dot files and removed any that were lurking in old Application Data and Microsoft Office folders.
    2. Deleted all Acrobat 5 and 6 folders and subfolders still lurking in Program Files.
    3. Used Add/Remove to delete Adobe Reader 8 and its updates. I figure I can always install Reader 9 if I need it as a separate app.
    4. Checked that everything was gone using the Windows Installer CleanUp utility (it was).
    5. Restarted my machine.
    6. Turned off my anti-virus software.
    7. Did a search for any pdfm*.dot files - found one only in the current Microsoft Office folder and left it there.
    8. Reinstalled Acrobat 9 Professional.
    9. Opened my test Word 2003 document.
    10. Checked all the Acrobat conversion settings and left them as the defaults.
    11. Converted the doc to PDF and checked for internal links. Yes! The TOC links worked! But my joy was short-lived as the page link didn't work...
    12. Tried various other conversion settings based on some suggestions from Lance in first level Adobe Support yesterday - still no page link. And I also lost the TOC links when I cleared the Enable Accessibility check box on the Settings tab of the conversion settings.
    13. Checked the Edit > Preferences > Convert To PDF settings for Word in Acrobat 9 - add bookmarks and add links are both selected (default).
    14. Used Acrobat 9 to create the PDF (File > Create > From File) hoping that this might might a difference. Nope. No TOC or page links.
    15. Changed conversion settings back to default via Word 2003, and created a PDF from a longer document. Again the TOC links worked, the URLs worked (they always did), the bookmarks worked (they always did too), but the none of the internal page cross-reference links worked.
    So my summary is this:
    * I can only create TOC links *if* Enable Accessibility is turned on, but I have always turned this off in earlier versions of Acrobat as I don't need it and it made the process of creating a PDF from a long document incredibly slow - I'm wary of using it!
    * I cannot get internal page links to work at all, no matter which method I use to create the PDF (from within Word or within Acrobat), and no matter which conversion settings I select.
    I really don't know what to try next. Manually creating links for what could be hundreds of cross-references in a single document is NOT an option, especially as I have many of these long documents.
    Any further suggestions?

  • Converting image links from Word to PDF

    If I insert a picture into a Word file (Insert/Picture From File), select the picture and Insert/Hyperlink and then Convert to Adobe PDF, the hyperlink is still active in the pdf file as expected (Add Links is checked in the conversion settings).
    However, if I do the same but apply any layout options to the picture before attaching the hyperlink (e.g. Format Picture/Layout/Square text wrapping), Convert to PDF does not convert the link into the pdf file and the image appears as if no link had ever been set.
    Does anybody know of a solution to this problem?  Or is Acrobat 9 any better?  I am curently using Word 2000 and Acrobat 6 running on XP

    Thanks for the reply.
    I have already inserted the links within the pdf, so I do have a working document.  It is only a draft, though, and any subsequent editing requires going back to the original Word document, editing and converting again to pdf and then re-establishing the links - with over 30 images (linked to pre-exixting pdf documents) this last step is both tedious and error-prone!  Thanks for the warning re Acrobat 9 and Word 2000.  I had been thinking of upgrading ...

  • Acrobat Pro 8 - Linking files causes issue

    We create projects that contain multiple PDFs (the number varies).  For each project, a table of contents (TOC) is created.  The bookmarks within the TOC are links to other PDFs.  The issue we've begun experiencing is that after linking to a file, when previewing the document (via clicking the Pages option), one or more pages appear blank.  Acrobat crashes at this point.  When opened, the linked file will open, but contains blank pages.  We then have to replace the pages with the source, which works fine. 
    This issue results in the process taking several times longer than it should.  The process the user uses is pasted below.  I was unable to find a similar issue via Google or searching the Adobe forums.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you.
    Inserting Files into the Bookmark Tabs
    1. CTRL + SHIFT + D (delete all but 1 page of the TOC)
    2. CTRL + SHIFT + I (insert the pdf file associated with the tab)
    3. CTRL + SHIFT + D (delete the rest of the TOC – always #1)
    4. CTRL + SHIFT + S (Save as: select the pdf file you inserted)
    5. On the tab/Bookmark you're working on
    a. Right click – Left Click
    b. CTRL + C (to copy all the text in this Bookmark)
    c. CTRL + D (Opens Document Properties)
    d. Tab (the current title will become highlighted)
    e. CTRL + V (to paste the text you just copied)
    f. Press OK
    g. CTRL + S (save)
    6. While still on the tab/Bookmark you just added
    a. Click on the Pages tab (to the left)

  • Acrobat 8.1.6 and Word 2007 - PDF printing problem

    I have a weird problem with printing a word 2007 document to the Adobe PDF printer (distiller). I hope someone can help with this.
    My two-page Word document has a background color, text, text boxes and two imported images (both under 500kb). Now, the problem is two-fold:
    If the 'print background color' option is disabled (unchecked), the PDF looks okay, but the background color vanishes as does text within text boxes (the text boxes themselves appear fine).
    If the 'print background color' option is enabled, the PDF shows only the background color, but no text!
    In either case, the PDF generation takes an unusually long time.
    I tried to follow the advices given in other threads, and looked for the presence of Acrotray.exe (it was present during the process). I also tried printing the document to a file (.prn), renaming the extension to .ps, and double-clicking it to send the job to distiller - every time with the same result.
    I must mention that if I use Word 2007's own 'Save to PDF' feature, it generates a clean PDF without any problem. It is only the Acrobat Distiller that is giving me endless grief. Can someone knowledgeable please help me with this issue?

    I have an update. This is even weirder. It turns out that after I generate the PDF and only the background color shows up, I can use the Touch Up Object tool to select the entire page (by clicking anywhere in the colored area), and press 'delete'. If I do this, parts of the background color gets deleted, revealing the text underneath - including the background color!!!!! And doing this repeatedly, I can remove this strange 'overshadow' and find everything (image, text, text box) intact underneath. I can do the same to the text box, and eventually, the missing text appears there.
    I, of course, have to do this for every single page!
    In summary, it is almost as if my text and images are being covered by a sheet with the same color as the background, which I am then removing part by part - with each stroke of the delete key - much like opening a . Strangely, this happens for each page except the last page (which prints fine - with images and texts etc.)
    Does anyone have a clue about this?
    Update: I hadn't seen the replies from Bill and Lori when I posted this. Thank you both for replying! I do think that the problem is with transparency, given what I found out just now (written here). However, I have tried different PDF settings, standard and high quality (this is the one I normally use), and yet I have had the same issue!
