    link to pdf file

    I have a flash movie on my stage. It is scrolling text that I want to be a link to a pdf file on our server. The file is uploaded, but I can't get it to link to file. "not found" error message. I had to create an html file with the info, it works fine but not with a pdf like a normal html link. Is this not possible to do?

    I put the Action script similar to this: "on (press) {getURL("http://www.test.com/pdf/file.pdf")
    }
