Hi Patrick,

I think the tool you want is PDFmaker, included with Acrobat.

Here's an excerpt from the Adobe knowledgebase

"The method you choose to create PDF files depends on the features you
want to include in your Adobe PDF file. To create PDF files with the
quickest and simplest method, use the Adobe PDF printer. If you want to
include embedded tags, styles, bookmarks, hyperlinks, or Properties
information for the Word document, convert them by using PDFMaker. Because
PDFMaker provides these additional features, it may take longer to convert
documents, especially large documents that contain several fonts, complex
tables, or both."

If you're still having problems, check out this article to verify you're
using the right version of Acrobat with Word:

Hope this helps,
