Point to a internal bookmark from an external program? - Adobe Acrobat Windows

Hi! Like most users already discovered, html-files does not look good when send to the printer. Therefor, we would like to use pdf-files instead of chm-files. Chm-files has however a big advantage and that is that you can point to a specific bookmark from an external program (very good when you want to point to at specific topic in your doent when pressing F1). Is there any possible way to point to a pdf-file:s internal bookmark from an external program just like you can in for example a compiled html-file? Thanks...

    You cannot link to bookmarks in any way, but you can link to named
    destinations (which are not the same thing) and to page numbers.

    New feature of 6.0, except on web URLs where it has been around
    longer.

    Ok!

    Is it possible to use this feature without explorer? I read something about a /a-flag from the console but cannot find any doentation how to do this. Can anyone tell me plase?

    There is no other doentation, but I experimented and found you can
    use the /A flag, with values in quotes, after the command name and
    before a file name.

    Thanks Aandi!

    Your information was very helpful!

    Works just fine but it has one drawback. If the doent is already open the "chapter- or page-jump" doesn't work. To make this work you have to close Acrobat or the actual doent that is open in acrobat. The first alternative takes a while and I don't know if the second alternative is possible. So, my next question (and hopefully the last) is - Is there any way to close an open doent in Acrobat without closing the entire program?
