Adobe READER - can one control it by automation code?

The question is specifically about the free adobe READER program.
I would want to be able to control the reader through automation.
eg.
Open a pdf file, Print then close the reader.
Open a pdf file then navigate to a specific page

Is this possible?
Links to good information will result in more points being assigned to the question.

Andy;
see if the next url helps you with your problem, it's an example that use the Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Browser Control (AcroPDF.dll) with Visual Basic 6.0.

You can do even more. See the article at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/miscctrl/acroview.aspx ("Adobe ActiveX Control with MFC")

Thanks guys, I have doubled the points and split equally between you.
I haven't checked either link - there was a rethink at this end of what was required and the question became redundant.
