I see that Adobe Readere has discontinued the use of Flash.  My question is:  When I have a file uploaded to a serever.  When accessing that file in a computer that has no flash.  would the file be corrupt, unreadable or inaccurate.  Just trying to remedy a problem.  thanks

Adobe Flash has been discontinued entirely, not just in Reader.

The answer to your question depends on the situation: How was Flash used in the file? What application (including version number) is used by the person opening the file? etc.

I sent a file of a template drawing to a blog site. People opening it are receiving an inaccurate template. It is not the same size as original when they open it. I am new to computers. Someone said it is Flash causing the problem. They also said there is no more Flash.

The original drawing was made in CorelDraw as a .cdr and saved in .pdf, and uploaded to that site as a .pdf.

I hope I am explaining it correctly. I am just interested how I can correct it so it does not happen again. Does that make sense? I am confused.

Ok, if Flash was needed there would be an error message mentioning Flash. 

 

I don't know really whaty you mean by "It is not the same size as original when they open it. " except to guess... Files, including PDFs don't have a fixed size on screen, they could be any size, and you cannot control it. There is no way for you, for example, to guarantee your design will be 3 x 5 actual inches on any one's computer screen. (Priting out is a slightly different story)
