Did you actually click on the PDF file link on that page? The PDF is perfectly fine and saves to my desktop.

So if you can get the PDF, it would be polite (especially for staff) if you updated your text above to reflect that fact. As it is, it still sounds like you can't get the PDF and want someone to help you.

Did you download the generated PDF file you can see in GIANT ORANGE LETTERS at the bottom of the screen shot?

"Didn't work." That is insufficient information. What error message did you get? Did you get a PDF file saved on your desktop, maybe?

That is the PDF file! You should be able to print that. Or load it into Adobe Reader or whatever PDF viewer you have on your machine.
