Topic: Bookmark set action

I have combined many Microsoft Reports into one pdf. I am searching for a word that begins with "Report" on each page. The actual words are Report_001, Report_002, etc. When I find the word, I want to save it to use as a bookmark label. I create a bookmark and try to set the bookmark action to go to the page where the "Report" was found. The bookmark label doesn't work, neither does the set action.

Help is appreciated. This is the Java code:

var ckWord, numWords, saveword;
var pattern = /^Report/;
var bm = bookmarkRoot.children[0];
console.println("Action " + bm.getaction);
for (var i = 0; i < this.numPages; i++) { numWords = this.getPageNumWords(i); saveword = "test"; innerloop: for (var j = 0; j < numWords; j++) { ckWord = (this.getPageNthWord(i, j)) if (ckWord.match(pattern) ) saveword = (this.getPageNthWord(i, j)) // !!!!!! the next line doesn't work // bookmarkRoot.createChild(saveword, "this.pagenum + " + i, bookmarkRoot.children.length) /// // !!!!! the following line works for the bm label but not for the set action // bookmarkRoot.createChild(ckWord + i, "this.pagenum + " + i, bookmarkRoot.children.length) break innerloop } } }
