I have recently started creating HTML E-Shots using Dreamweaver, which are then emailed to our customers.
I have very little experience in Dreamweaver although I know enough to create fairly simple HTML pages, I have never had any problems with linking images before although when linking PDFs it doesnt seem to work.
I would be grateful for any advice anyone can offer.

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand.. Are you attempting to display PDF previews? Or are you just attempting to link actual PDFs for download?

If you're attempting to display PDFs as EShots, then you'd require a little more than HTML know how.

Although, if you're just trying to create linkable PDF downloads, you need to create associations in your webserver. The problem isn't in the link, it's in the associations your server makes with the files you make available for download. Also, try linking the whole hypertext.

ALSO... Since you may be having issues with the webserv association.. You may want to consider implementing an an easier method for public domain file sharing...
FlexShare - PHP Scripts - CodeCanyon

You set up a database, the php/flex code handles the rest. It has an easily manageable GUI for you to upload files to.

I hope this helps!
