I need a workaround!

The old "filename.doc#Bookmark" hyperlink format doesn't seem to work in PowerPoint 2007-- once I close the powerpoint file, all of the "#Bookmark" references get stripped from the hyperlinks.

Is there a workaround?

Are you saying the hotfix doesn't work. I know there's a similar bug in 2010.
