    Set Bookmark Open Options to Open File with Wild Cards

      Hi there Guys. I need help with something. I work on manuals with various table of contents that contain bookmarks and a lot of them are basically cookie cutter.

      Here is what I am wondering:

      The bookmarks are in numerical order and need to link to an individual PDF
      file in the same folder:

      Example:

      Bookmark 1: "1. Office Hour Files for ABC company dated 10/01/07." needs to link to a file called "Office Hour Files for ABC company dated 10/01/07.PDF".

      Bookmark 2: "1. Healthcare Benefits for ABC company dated 09/30/07."
      needs to link to a file called "1. Healthcare Benefits for ABC company
      dated 09/30/07.PDF".

      ETC.

      Also, the file names -- not the bookmark names -- need to be shortened to 75 characters or less most of the time due to cd burning software. So soemtimes (or most of the time) the file name is much shorter than the original bookmark name.

      Is there code that I can use to batch process the Table of
      Contents file to find bookmark in TOC file that starts with "1. [bookmark name]" and open file the corresponding file in the same folder that starts with "1. [truncated bookmark name].PDF"

      then

      with "2. [full bookmark name]" and open file that starts with "2.
      [truncated bookmark name].PDF"

      and so on maybe through

      with "200. [full bookmark name]" and open file that starts with "200.
      [truncated bookmark name].PDF"

      THANKS SO MUCH... ANY HELP AT ALL WILL BE AWESOME. Also, let me know how
      much it would cost if you know someone who could write the code for me.

      PS: I can use ARTS-PDF software for batchprocessing. I use Acrobat 5.0.
      I really have no reason to upgrade for my purposes, but will if needed. I
      use a lot of keystroke features in 5.0 that are easier to use than in the
      later versions.

      later!!

      THANKS AGAIN!!!!! BE WELL

      KEN
