Any error message when activating the cross-file link?

If the files are on a public web site, could you indicate a sample PDF?

What are the authoring tools used to create the PDF?

Notice that sometimes a similar problem may be encountered even with links
that are perceived as internal -- see example/more details

[ If you use FrameMaker 8.0, see
for more information on cross-file linking problems when PDFs are accessed
through web browsers. ]
