Go through this Re: Having trouble inserting a PDF into word
You can create a hyperlink in Ms word
Go to Insert tab and find Hyperlink, from the dialog box find your pdf file and click on OK button. This will bring up a highlighted links not a page of PDF file
Thank you, but this is not exactly what I need.
I understand how to insert a Hyperlink in Word, but your method opens the original PDF without going to a specific page.
What I need is to create a link to a specific page in the PDF, so that when the user clicks on the link it Word, it opens the PDF and takes them to that specific page in the PDF

Dim targetLink As String
Dim targetName As String
Dim pageNumber As Integer
Dim pathPDF As String

pageNumber = parts(1)
pathPDF = Selection.Hyperlinks(1).Address
Call OpenPagePDF(pathPDF, pageNumber)
Public Function OpenPagePDF(sMyPDFPath As String, iMyPageNumber As Integer)
Dim RtnCode, AdobePath As String
' Define your path to Acrobat or Acrobat reader in this example I'm using Adobe Acrobat DC
AdobePath = "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat"
RtnCode = Shell(AdobePath & " /a " & Chr(34) & "page=" & iMyPageNumber & "=OpenActions" & Chr(34) & sMyPDFPath, 1)
Important note: AdobePath = "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat" (' Define your path to Acrobat or Acrobat reader in this example I'm using Adobe Acrobat DC)
