    I think word uses 's' and 'p' to specifiy sections and pages (at least when printing).  You might try something like:

    After checking around a bit, I can't find any way to link directly to a specific page.  I'm afraid it may not be possible.  However, the bookmarks should work.  You could link to a bookmarked table of contents in the document, or just add bookmarks for every page.  It may depend on your version of Word though.

    Hope that helps!
