Adobe READER - can one control it by automation code?

I would want to be able to control the reader through automation.
Open a pdf file, Print then close the reader.
Open a pdf file then navigate to a specific page

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
