Hi Guys
Attached is a Table-of-Content for my Price-Catalog.
I create the TOC and the catalog using VBA & Access 2003  REPORT.
I run the report and print it to Adobe Acrobat.
I would convert the toc line entries to links
The user clicks a link and it takes him to the designated page.
How?
Your help is appreciated.

Hi

there is no attachment..

Links are created with the Link Tool in Advanced Editing. Drag the cursor around your page number, set your options in the following dialog ('go to page view' is the option you need) and then go to the page you want to link to and press OK. repeat for next page number.

That's all.

Thanks.

In essence the base advice above applies using Adobe Acrobat. As you only have 16 pages and many duplicate page numbers you can copy and paste the links leading to the same pages.
