I am trying to save a word document with hyperlinks in PDF file format so that I can import it onto a webpage for my employer. The hyperlink works fine in word but after I save the document as a PDF document the hyperlink no longer works. What can I do to fix this. You would think that having Acrobat Pro X you would not have these type of issues, even if I had to import the document as is into the adobe product and then save it to a PDF file with the active hyperlink.

I'm sorry I forgot to say that I am using a MACBook PRO and that the OFFICE Version and Acrobat Version I am using is for MAC as well. The normal windows fixes don't seem to apply, at least I can't get them to download.
With Mac OS the only way is to use the OpenOffice, or LibreOffice, or NeoOffice "Export as PDF" feature.;-)
You're right; on a Mac if you choose Print>PDF>Save as Adobe PDF from MS Word 2011 that contains hyperlinks the links will be intact in the pdf doc, but if you then save as MS Word the links are gone. At least that has been my experience.

Clinton: your right about hyperlinks, but to convert other interactive elements (such as bookmarks, etc.) into the PDF it requires OpenOffice.
