How to display a PDF on iPad in a Web Viewer

I save a PDF on my iPad and want to display it in a web viewer. It works fine on my desktop machine. I have a script to Get(DocumentsPath), save the PDF to that location and then use data:text/html format in the viewer. The file shows up OK on the iPad along with the FileMaker files. But it fails to display in the WV.

 

On the desktop machine the path looks like this:

 

/Users/jonathanstars/Documents/ (to which I append the file name)

 

But on the iPad it looks like this:

 

/var/mobile/Applications/E3E76B18-5F68-4D92-A7AE-74095BDF9356/Documents/

 

How do I need to phrase it differently to display the file?
