Might I clarify? You own Acrobat Standard, yes? You aren't depending on the
PDF print driver that comes with Word, yes? I take it, regular Adobe Acrobat
installs itself in Word so that it will generate linked PDFs from a Word
file when the proper "plug-in" is called into play, right?

At least in Word 2000, from which I have yet to upgrade, the PDF print
driver does no more than create a static, non-html linked product.

The capability of clicking an icon in Word and generating a linked PDF
fascinates me, but is beyond me.

Actually, it was a lot easier than that. The Acrobat Standard software
didn't install right - the menu options in Word were missing. I un- and
re-installed and now it works fine.

Thanks for the reply.
