I'm publishing a large doc set in pdf's, web based. Source program is Frame
6.0 + SGML. One of the things we are "trying" to do is link into an Access
database while in the pdf's.

I can get the fm and pdf docs to open the database.
I can get the database to open the pdf (Frameview unavailable, so why bother
checking if it opens fm?).
I can get MSIE to open pdf and database.

I can't get the pdf that was opened in MSIE to open the Access database.
MSIE (or Acrobat reader) locks up. The error message I received was that
Acrobat could not open the file (but it will open up the db when it's
running stand-alone).

I'm hoping someone has encountered this problem before to prevent the
dreaded visit to the MSIE website, as I have a sneaking suspicion the
problem lay there. Any suggestions?

Oh, other insignificant info - MSIE 5.0, WinNT.
