Topic: Goto NamedDest in another document... not working in Reader

I have a problem....
This script works exactly like I want it to when I am in full Acrobat 5 (it opens another PDF and goes to the appropriate section, but doesn't work using Acrobat Reader 5.

// open new document
var myDocument = app.openDoc("MODULE1.pdf",this);
// go to destination in this new doc
myDocument.gotoNamedDest("Resources");
// close old document
this.closeDoc();

When I access it using Acrobat Reader 5, it gets as far as opening the new document (to the regular opening page) and just stops. It never gets to the Named Destination "Resources".

What's going on? How can I fix it?
