I seem to recall some compatibility problems between Office 2003 and Acrobat
7.0; this ringing bells with anyone else?

Wendy, you seem to have confirmed that the PDFMaker add-on wasn't installed.
You might try un/re-installing Acrobat to see if that solves the problem. If
it doesn't, download and install all available Acrobat upgrades (I think
there's a 7.0.5 and a 7.0.7).

Perhaps that will do the trick.

You mentioned that you tried to generate the PDF using the same method that
you'd use with Frame, but I don't think you mentioned the result. Did you
get a PDF? If so, I doubt it contained bookmarks and active hyperlinks
within the document. The "print to PDF" option can be used to convert any
printable file to a PDF, but the drawback is that you won't get
embellishments such as bookmarks and hyperlinks (unless the authoring tool
is Frame).

Good luck!
