Just to add to the above ... You'll also need to set the appropriate
checkboxes in Word before running the Convert to PDF macro.

In Word, from the menu bar, go to File -> Create Adobe PDF or Adobe ->
Change Conversion Settings (I've seen it both ways, don't ask me why)

In the resulting dialog box, click the Office tab and check the items you
want (notably "Cross-References & TOC links)

Then click the Convert to PDF icon.

Hope that helps.
