Dear all,
for an existing document archiving system we need to store pdf data with a PATH/NAME given by this *x DBM System. To init and retrieve path information we would like to add a button (or whatever) to Acrobat READER (or other free pdf reader) that allows for a win32 system()/shell() call after a pdf file has been loaded into the reader. Googling the web and looking into ADOBE docs has not revealed a *simple*. solution. Any pointers into the direction to look at or tools including other wkk readers as well as any other suggestions would greatly be appreciated. We are not looking for the big tool boxes but rather a little helper to accomplish this specific objective..

cheers,
Dietmar
