Topic: Word links not working in PDF

Hi All,
I have a 600 page document that contains hypelinked bookmarks.( one dodument only) They all work fine in word but when I convert them to pdf( first of all it takes about an hour for acrobat to convert it to a pdf) two problems occur-

1) Some links don't work how they are supposed to ( i.e. jumping to the wrong locations )

2) Some links are not links at all

How ever when I cut the part of the document that contained the links and paseted them in different word file and PDF it, they work fine. ( file size 100 Pages )

I was wondering does PDF have a limit or something on the number of links it can create or I am doing something wrong ?

Please advise.

I am using Word 2000, Acrobat 5.0, Windows 2000
I am converting it to PDF from the convert to PDF button in Word
