Links to Excel files not working in PDF output

Postby Finner on Wed Mar 31, 2021 9:45 am

I am trying to build a document that mainly provides links to five Excel files (.xlsx). I create hyperlinks to the Excel files and then build the PDF. When I open the PDF, the links don't open the Excel files. I've tried placing the Excel files both in the Content folder and in the PDF Output folder--no go. What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

I watched that not all pdf-viewers open Excel files. I placed them in content, Flare compiles them into the output folder. This works fine with Foxit Reader but not with Edge and others.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
Kind regards,
