When you say "JavaScript link", what exactly do you mean by that?

If it's just JavaScript code, that you would use in a HTML page to control the browser, I'm pretty sure it's not possible with Acrobat. JavaScript in Acrobat is something completely different than JavaScript for the browser. Both use the core JavaScript language, but then they both add application specific extensions to the core language. Any JavaScript that you would add to a link in Acrobat would never get executed by the browser.

Yes, I was referring to the javascript code that would be used in an HTML page  to control the browser.  I will do some research before I totally cancel the option out.  thanks,

well, I found some documentation on the JavaScript issue.  There seem to be some functions in regular JavaScript that you can use, as well as the Adobe Acrobat JavaScript, but I still wasn't able to get it to work, so I'll accept your answer.  Thanks for your help!
