Hi Shakti,

You can say Response.Redirect or Server.Transfer to open the pdf file. Note that only if there is acrobat installed in the client machiene, will it be opened in the browser

If you want to show a PDF along with other things in the browser, you'll need to use a frameset or iframe tag so you can "embed" the PDF inside some other HTML. Then all you need to do is point the source of the frame at the PDF file and let the browser take care of the rest (loading the PDF reader inside that frame if there is a suitable method).
