PDF problems: File does not begin with %PDF
I use exported crystal reports in PDF format on my web site, and i was getting intermittent errors from a small number of users.  I couldn't reproduce it, and i found a thoroughly excellent article on the problem at the Fluid Components International web site. 

They explain what's going wrong and have some suggestions to fix it.  I suspect in my case it was a problem with embedding the PDF in an activeX control.  i'll just redirect users to download the file instead.
