Going by the documentation, it looks you should be able to use the parameter zoom. Try appending that to your URL:


Dim filePath As String = "~/Resources/GREAT.pdf#zoom=100"

It may just be the way you have your PDF viewer configured, and not a problem with the file itself at all.  I'd look into it.
