Default Question about Adobe Acrobat reader

I'm trying to link something to a .pdf file and was wondering if I could link to a particular page inside of the file, instead of page one of the document.

The document is quite large and, rather than sending them to page one and making my user trudge through numerous pages of the whole volume, I'd prefer to send them to a particular part of the document.

Does anyone know how to do this with a hotlink? I've asked everyone at my work and they all give me the "WTF is wrong with you" stare. If it's not possible to do this I'd be very surprised. It only makes sense. But I am in the military after all...

I believe you will have to have the full the full version of Adobe. I believe that the reader is just for that.

If you do have the full version you can make a bookmark to the section by going Edit---> Add BookMark. Give the BookMark a name and Enter. The BookMark name will appear on the left side under the BookMark tab. If you want to link to the BookMark itself the path would be:

{url}http://www.yourwebsite.whatever/filename.pdf#bookmarksname{/url}

Hope this helps.

Naw, I'm making a spreadsheet to pass out to people with different criteria for various awards and I'm trying to bookmark all the paragraphs that are published online in each regulation that pertain to each award.

I don't have access to modify the site that hosts the publications. I could probably get the full version of Adobe but it wouldn't transfer those bookmarks to the hotlinks that I'm attempting to create, would it?

BTW thanks for attempting to help. This is driving me nuts!

There's GOTTA be a way to do this out there.

If you get the full version and create bookmarks, those with just the reader will be able to see and access the bookmarks. That is the great thing about about Adobe Reader. People can see what you want them to see but can't make any changes to them.
