When a cross-file link opens the target PDF but on the default opening page 
instead of the destination specified, this typically indicates that the 
named destination is not present in the target PDF.

I suggest starting by verifying that all links are fully-functional when 
the PDFs are opened locally in Acrobat/Reader.

[ In FrameMaker-authored PDFs, a common reason for random bad links is 
having "Create Named Destinations for All Paragraphs" turned off in 
FrameMaker's PDF setup, Links tab. ]
