I have a form using the web browser control that displays a selected PDF file.
This is all good until I open Access minimised.
The form opens, without the PDF file, but shuts down Access when closed.
Is there a way, over multiple computers and an intranet / internet, and probably various PDF readers, to display said files while Access is minimised?

you come to my rescue once again. I thought this might be the answer but after spending time getting the web browser to work, sort of, I thought it best to ask.
My sincere thanks once again.
John
