This is fairly easy. Set your URL to something like "mypdf.pdf#page=3"

Here's the definitive doc from Adobe on how you can open to specific locations:

To get to, for example, page 3:
     http://yoursite.com/whatever/document.pdf#page=3
Or to a named destination:
     http://yoursite.com/whatever/document.pdf#namedest=some_anchor

Some browsers will not work as they chop off the # and everything after it, but this is the only method available.

Hope that helps.

Thank you both. I split the points the way I did because you both gave essentially the same answer, but Funkmotor was 5 minutes later. However, Funkmotor did provide some additional information with the named destination.
