Hi Tikiri,

Be sure to check "Use printer metrics to lay out document" in the [Compatibility] tab in the [Tools] [Options] menu.
I didn't get it to work in Word2000 but, with this setting, it works in Word97.

> I was trying to print postscript commands through MS word while printing to the distiller printer. The following field was inserted to a cell.
> {Print \p cell "[/Rect [wp$box pathbbox] /Action /GoToR /File (Blankcrf.pdf) /Page 2 /Subtype /Link /ANN pdfmark"}
> After printing the document, the resulting pdf file has a link to the page 2 of the blankcrf.pdf file. The problem is the link box is not located in the box, instead it is located on the top of the document. The variable wp$box and pathbbox should take the borders of the current cell and convert it into the correct rectangle.
