Describe in detail what the ASP does. Is it generating an FDF?
First of all, thank you for your interest and
Yes, my asp generates the pdf using fdf. Part of this is:
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.fdf"
Set FdfAcx = Server.CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")
' ======= Get/Create FDF and Set Values/Filename
Set oFDF = FdfAcx.FDFCreate
oFDF.FDFSetValue "Loc", strLoc, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "Comp", strCompN, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "Symb", strSymb, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "PolNum", strPolNo, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "Mod", strMod, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "PolHol", strPolHol, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "Usr",struid, false
i = 1
j = 1
k = linp
While (i <= npag)
strData = ""
while ((Not rs.EOF) and j <= k )
strData = strData & rs.Fields(22).value & VbCrLf
'strData = strData & i & " - " & j & " - " & k & VbCrLf
j = j + 1
k = (j + linp) - 1
if i <= npagaux then
oFDF.FDFSetValue "WorData"&i,strData, false
oFDF.FDFSetValue "WorData"&i,"Blank Page Left Intentionally", false
i = i + 1
oFDF.FDFSetFile "http://" & request.servervariables("SERVER_NAME") & "/pdf/myform.pdf"
Set oFdf = Nothing
Set FdfAcX = Nothing
' ====== Clean enviroment
Thanks for your help.
That's pretty straightforward. Does it work correctly with Firefox?
yes .. works fine in firefox ...
I realized that if the generated pdf has 1 or 2 pages then there is no problem .. problem happens when there are more than 2 pages (around 200kb) .. IE8 does not open it at least I kill the iexplorer.exe process.
I dont understand what is happening because my asp application has been there working fine for many years and it is not working just with Reader X.
Any one having this issue?
I was having the same problem, disabling the plugin fixed it for me as well.
200k sounds familiar. Take a look at the following, it may or may not be relevent:
By default, the IIS web server restricts the size of ASP requests and file uploads to 200k and file downloads to 4 MB. In Windows 2003, the upload setting is controlled by the AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed and the download setting is controlled by the ASPBufferingLimit in the metabase.xml file. If you are using Windows 2008, the metabase.xml has been replaced with easier to use xml files. Depending on whether you are using Windows 2008 or Windows 2003, follow the appropriate steps to increase the file upload or download size.
