How to Create a Hyperlink to a bookmark in a Word 2007 docx document

I need to create a hyperlink from a webpage that opens a Word Document in 2007 from a local file storage drive.  I have created the bookmark and it works until I put the link out into the html for the page.  It comes back with a page not displayed message.  Here is my syntax:

file:///\\path\Document.docx#Bookmark

This works if I take the #Bookmark off, but once I add the bookmark in it does not work.  I remember doing this previous to 2007...any ideas?

Create another Word document with a hyperlink to "Document.docx#Bookmark", save the document as Web page. Make sure that the hyperlink works and see  source code of the page.
Unfortunately I can't provide ready solution as I haven't got neither Office 2007 nor network at the moment.

It works when it is done in word, but as soon as I open it in a browser it goes to page cannot be displayed.

2007 (and later) uses a different file structure than 2003 and its predecessors.  Using XML parsing in ASP.NET would be the doorway to the bookmark.

That is a little beyond me.  Can someone provide me an example?
