Programatically call copy text tool


I am using Crystal Reports 11 to create a daily report then export it with Acrobat 9 Pro and e-mail it to specific users. The users open it in Adobe Reader 9.

What they would like to do is to be able to copy a section of the pdf document and drop it into an e-mail. I know that it can be done manually but I am looking into a way to see if the tool can be called automatically. I have embedded the mail to command to call the e-mail program and a seperate hyperlink to open the specific records from the SQL database for the users viewing but can't figure out if there is a way to add a button that can call the copy text tool in acrobat.

Any help or suggestion is appreciated,
