    Possible to link to a specific section of a doc?

    Boy, it sure is a shame the message titles are so limited in length, otherwise I would have better conveyed my question.

    I want to link within a Word doc to a specific section of a published PDF we have on our company site. I can place the URL in the Word doc, which takes me to the report, but I'd rather link to a particular section (near the end of the PDF doc). Is there a way to do this- such as possibly creating a bookmark in the PDF and then having a specific URL that links to that? I realize this might be a PDF-related question more than a Word one.

    Thanks.

    I haven't had luck with this in the past but Acrobat Reader is supposed to honour links like
    acrobatfile.pdf#page=5
    acrobatfile.pdf#nameddest=Chapter1

    Try that syntax in your hyperlinks and perhaps you will have more luck than me.

    I'm thinking that this only works when you are following a hyperlink from html in a browser and the pdf opens within the browser.
