Topic: Go to View in Acrobat 6.0

I have been asking this question for months and I have not received a good answer. So I will ask again.
Where is the Go To View Function in Acrobat 6.0???
I create links from one pdf to many other pdfs. The way I create links in Acrobat 4.05 is create my link box open the pdf that I am linking to, then go to the page I am linking to and hit set link. Done.
Now what I am I supposed to do? I asked and I get the answer: First set your destination points. Then link to the destination points.
So let me get this straight - I have to first go through my main document (The one I am creating all the links in) Figure out all of my links. Then I have to go into my other pdfs and find those areas that I am linking to and make destination points. Then I have to go back and then create my links.
The main document I am working with on average contains 1500 links. I am not going through and figure out where 1500 links should go to and then set 1500 destinations and then set 1500 links. I don't know if my math is correct but I think I have just tripled my work.
Now if someone can tell me how that is easier I would like to hear the reasoning.
(don't give me the answer of "well, when you change the pages in your other documents the links won't change") That is not making the job of making the links easier, and I have plug-ins with 4.05 and 5.05 that make it possible to change the target documents and be able to fix the links.
I am just wondering if anyone else has run into this problem or if I am just the only one and I should just stick with using 4.05 and 5.05 which makes me look out of date.
Sincerely -
A very Upset Acrobat User.
