I want to use VBA code to open a specific pdf file at a given location in response to a user's request.
According to info on the Adobe site, this can be achieved with the following code:
Acrobat.exe /A "nameddest=suppliedparamet
I basically want to replicate this within VBA, but I'm not sure how to initiate this.
I've seen some info about how to open a pdf file at a given page number (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_20949436.html
) but I don't see how to swap the pageno reference for the nameddestination reference. Also, I'm not clear if the named destination is just any piece of text within the pdf file, or some translation of an underlying bookmark.
Currently I perform this function using a Word document with bookmarks (it is a help file and each bookmark represents the guidance for a specific form within the application). I just want to swap the editable Word document for an uneditable acrobat document (at the same time reducing the size of the underlying document).
