Topic: What's the best option to search for words with Acrobat Reader?

Please help me out. I have Acrobat Reader only and I want to open a .pdf file and search for some words so that when the file opens up, it'll go to the required page immediately based on the search. I'll be using Visual Basic to write the application. I'm aware of the Adobe SDK, which is not an option since I don't have the $$. So, I'm divided between the ActiveX control, pdf.ocx, provided by Adobe and the DDE option. Looking at the 'Object Browser' option for the ActiveX, I am not aware of a search method that I can perform to do what I had described earlier. Is there any unofficial documentation on pdf.ocx? I can't find any on google. Besides that, for the DDE message 'DocGoToNameDest', what does it do? Its description is "Goes to a name destination specified". It doesn't make sense to me.
Any input is very much appreciated. Thanks!
