            Thanks for that

            Unfortunately it did not work as I need to link to a pdf on the local hard drive which according to the article is not supported. See text below:

            Note: If you use UNC server locations (\\servername\folder) in a link, then set the link to open to a set destination using the procedure in the following section. If you use URLS containing local hard drive addresses (c:\folder\), then you cannot link to page numbers or set destinations. With Adobe Acrobat 7.0 products, a link to a page number only works if you use HTTP or HTTPS locations. UNC server locations will only work if you use the set destinations method outlined in the following section of this document.

            Any more ideas. Someone suggested converting the PDF to a chm but I would really like to just link to the pdf as this would make life alot easier for updates etc. I tried importing one into RH anyway but the results were not very good. Are they any tools that can do a better job? Text
