Topic: How to search for parameters in pdf file using Visual Basic?

Hello everyone. I'm hoping I can get help here. I've been researching on how to do this for quite a while now.

I'm trying to access a pdf file off the internet and go to the appropriate page immediately when Acrobat opens up based on my desired search word(s). I'll be writing an application using Visual Basic. Basically, when the user of the application clicks an option, a pdf file will be accessed off the internet, assuming the address of the pdf file is known already.

I've seen some suggestions based on my research where programmers use the pdf.ocx to to what I want to do. However, quite a number of people said not to go for the pdf.ocx option. What other option(s) do I have?

I'm also not very fluent yet in Visual Basic. Any suggestion and help is greatly appreciated.
