Viewing PDF files from within access (1 Viewer)

I've been reading everywhere on this site trying to find out how
to do this, but just can't seem to grasp it. I see people saying it can
be done, but can't find more specific details on how to go about it. I
just want to view a pdf file from within the access environment. I need
to be able to view contracts from my app, and joy oh joy they are all
in PDF form.

Any help is greatly appreciated to get me started on this. I've
tried using the Active X Adobe Acrobate Control but to no avail.

Basically the pdf is either embedded or linked to a record and launched from a form. Can also be done as hyperlink.

Basically form displays related info and the url of the related pdf
