Topic: How to access Acrobat options using VB?

Hi there!
In Acrobat 4.0 there are some options that previously belong to Exchange.
I need to access those using OLE automation.

To get those options using my mouse I do this:

First Open any PDF file with Acrobat 4.0
Next select File/Document Info/Open.
If you check all the options in the User Interface Options box you will be able to open later that PDF in your Web site without showing any of the toolbars.
That is what I need to do for my Web site or my Boss will kill me.

This is the code I was playing with:

> Check my VB5/VB6 code:
> Dim Res As Boolean
> Dim IfOpen As Boolean
> Dim TheReader As CAcroApp
> Dim AVDoc As CAcroAVDoc
> Dim PDDoc As CAcroPDDoc
> Set TheReader = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
> Set AVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
> If AVDoc.Open(txtPDF_Path.Text, "") = True Then
> Set PDDoc = AVDoc.GetPDDoc
> If TheReader.SetPreference(avpShowMenuBar, 0) = True Then
> If TheReader.SetPreference(avpShowToolBar, 0) = True Then
> If PDDoc.SetOpenInfo(1, PDFullScreen, "100") = True Then
> If PDDoc.Save(PDSaveFull, txtPDF_Path.Text) = True Then
> MsgBox "It was saved!"
> End If
> End If
> End If
> End If
> End If
> Set TheReader = Nothing
> Set AVDoc = Nothing
> Set PDDoc = Nothing
What am I doing wrong?
Please tell me how to access those options using
my VB code, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will thank you forever!
