Need to create PDF bookmarks

I can't believe that I am having trouble with this but I recently switched to Word 2007 (horrible) and Adobe Acrobat Standard 8. My OS is Windows 7.

I used to create bookmarks for the pdf file by selecting Word styles at Change Conversion Settings. After selecting the styles, the bookmarks generated automatically when I created the PDF. I cannot see how to do this either through Word 2007 or via Adobe Acrobat.

I used to have Adobe menu options in Word to generate the pdf or change conversion settings. If needed, I would run a Word Macro to get these menu options. That has not worked in 2007.

Any help would be appreciated.
