I'm attempting to automate the task of processing hundreds of PDF files by changing their default open parameters and document info characteristics. The development platform is Visual Basic through OLE automation on a Windows NT platform.

So far, I've been successful in updating the document info, and changing the initial view from Page Only to Bookmarks and Page.

My difficulty exists in that I cannot change the Open Info default magnification for the file. (Please note, I'm not referring to the Preferences default magnification.) I'm looking to change the initial magnification to "Fit Page" instead of "Default".

If anyone has achieved this hurdle, I would like to hear from you, and I can also provide answers to the work that I've accomplished thus far.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
