Topic: adding Go to Previous View button to ActiveView

I am trying to add a "Go to Previous View" button to the IAC ActiveView sample in the Acrobat SDK. As a test, I modified the VB6 SDK code for imgGotoFirstPage_Click() in frmMDI and replaced

r = AcroAVPageView.GoTo(0)
r = AcroAVPageView.DoGoBack

This works fine when I open a PDF inside ActiveView and navigate around in it. But if that PDF has a "Go to View" link in it to another PDF, DoGoBack will not get me back to the previous PDF. It will only let me go back to previous views within the same PDF.

I got the same result in the Visual C++ 6 version of ActiveView.

I think that somehow AVPageView.DoGoBack doesn't tell VB6/VCpp6 that it needs to re-open
a previous file. Something more is needed. Any suggestions?
