Topic: Named Destinatoins using DDE

I'm trying to write a program in C/C++ that will open a pdf file locally on my hard drive and then point it to a named destination. I am somewhat new to C/C++ so does anyone have any code or sample code that does this or is similar to this?

Secondly, I managed to download a sample file from the SDK called DDEOpen and it does work, however there is an initial view setting in Acrobat and it seems that Acrobat is ignoring this sample program and open the page designated in the initial page setting within Acrobat. Does anyone know how to override this or make Acrobat listen to a DDE program rather than the initial page setting?

Thirdly, I am trying to look for syntax definitions on several DDE commands. For example,

// Start the DDE work now that the viewer is launched.
memset (ddeCmdBuf, 0, sizeof(ddeCmdBuf));
strcpy (ddeCmdBuf, DDE_ITEMNAME);

retVal = DdeInitialize (&id, &DDE_ProcessMessage, APPCMD_CLIENTONLY, 0);

Where can I find some informatoin on what DdeInitialize, ddeCMDBuf, etc is found. There seems to be a lot of these commands in this sample program and I don't know what they do.
