Guarantee that the latest PDF file is displayed.

I have a web site where I post PDF report files and these files are routinely updated without changing the file name. Each report has a link on the web page to display the report in the browser. The issue some users are experiencing is that their browser doesn't always display the new update, it displays a cached version of the file. I've seen solutions on how to refresh a web page, but this isn't a web page, just a PDF file. Is there some way to automatically reload the PDF file with HTML code? The only solution I have found so far is that the user must manually hit the Refresh button after the PDF is displayed. TIA
