Topic: PDF ActiveX component

Hi all, I have a couple of questions about the pdf ActiveX component. If this is not the correct forum can someone please point me in the right direction. Anyway my questions:

I would like to be able to either open Adobe Reader with a specific file and to a certian page or open a VB form containing the ActiveX reader component to a desired page. I've had no luck in the "desired page" requirement with either method. Can this be done?

Secondly, is it possible to "encode" information on "hotspots" of a pdf file. This is big on my wish list as I would like to be able to open a pdf file, let the user click on an item and have it entered into a database table. I think that the only remote chance of this would be using the ActiveX component. Any advice?
