Topic: How to open a PDF file remotely

Hello Guys,
I am writing a Visual Basic Application to control
Adobe Acrobat Exchange 3.01. remotely. I only need to
open a PDF file and use one of the plug-in in the Adobe Acrobat Echange called RC Splitter which splits
a large PDF file to several PDF files.
what I don't know is how to use MenuitemExecute to open a specific PDF file.
The following code is what i have been trying.
Can I use a click control to trigger the Acrobat?

Sub Test_Click()
Text1.LinkMode = 0 'Make sure the link isn't active.
Z = Shell("c:\program files\Exchange\AcroEx32", 3) ' Start Acrobat Viewer
Text1.LinkTopic = "acroview|control" ' Set link topic.
Text1.LinkMode = 1 ' Set link mode in MANUAL.
Text1.LinkItem ="[MenuitemExecute("Open")]"
End Sub

Is anyone know about using VB to control the Acrobat,
Please tell me
Thank you very much indeed.
