Topic: Acrobat does not complete conversion from Word to PDF

I'm trying to convert a 63-page Word document (which contains quite a few embedded Visio objects) into pdf format, but everytime I try, it goes up to 78% complete then it scans the file for bookmarks and then the dialog box just closes. When I think the conversion process is completed and check the location of where I chose to save the pdf, it's not there!

Why is the conversion not completed? I don't get any error messages or nothing to indicate I'm doing something wrong. It just seems to stop for no reason. Following the same process on a document with less pages works just fine. Any ideas as to what this could be? I'm using WinXP, Word2003 and Acrobat 6.0 Standard.
