Topic: Acrobat Reader, DDE, and VB Example Sought

I am trying to invoke a particular page number of a
particular .pdf file from a Visual Basic Application, having only the "freebie" acrobat reader installed on the PC.
I realize that I can use ShellExecute, but this will not allow me to go to a particular page of the .pdf file.
From reading the Acrobat SDK documentation, I am convinced that I can open Acrobat reader, open a particular .pdf, and goto a specific page number using old DDE technology via the Acrobat SDK (not desired, but my only option to get to a specific page number directly from VB without invoking a browser).
I cannot find any VB examples of using the SDK DDE link with Acrobat Reader. The SDK documenation is very unclear, and I cannot determine what the values should be for the LinkTopic, LinkItem, and LinkMode properties.
If anyone has done this successfully and has either code examples or could tell me what the values of these
properties should be set to, it would be most appreciated.
