Help Reading PDF formatted files


Adobe® Acrobat® Reader is free, and freely distributable, software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files. PDF is a widely used format for files containing a mix of graphics and text. The PDF format preserves the look of documents formatted using a very wide variety of programs. When viewed using a "reader" program, PDF files look like printed 8.5 x 11 inch sheets of paper.

You have the option of either viewing a PDF document using your Web browser or downloading it to your PC. To download a document directly to your computer, click the Report in PDF format link above while holding the SHIFT key on your PC (the Option key for Macs).

If your computer does not recognize that PDF files (files with ".pdf" extension), you may first have to first download the Adobe Reader program from Adobe.

Acrobat Reader can be used as a stand-alone program that lets you view or print a PDF file. If you have only the stand-along Reader, then when you click on a link to a PDF-file, you must first save the file to your computer's disk. Later, you may be able to double-click on the PDF-file's icon to start up the Reader program and to read the file in. However, if your computer does not recognize that files with ".pdf" extensions are inputs to the Reader program, you may first have to start up the Reader program and then to load the PDF-file using the 'open' command.

Acrobat Reader can be integrated as a plug-in with common browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer. Once the plug-in has been installed and you click on a PDF link, the reader program automatically starts up and displays the file. This is very fast and convenient. It is worth the effort to get your reader plug-in working.
