    I've looked all over the web and am having no luck. I'm a finance guy doing research.


    I want to hyperlink the numberical data in each EXCEL 2007 spreadsheet cell to the specific PDF page that references the cell data. I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard. This process will provide a quick means of substantiating the data in thousands of cells.


    I have read articles on named destinations, but the problem seems to be that named destinations are not recognized and even inserting the
    "=page#" is not recognized by Excel. The hyperlink will go to the document, but not the specific page I want which is useless when you have about 200 citations within the document.


    We have a web server along the lines of file// but if absolutely necesssary I could save to my local if that makes a difference, but that should be a last option.

    If anyone has some other ideas about how to do what I want other than hyperlinking to adobe pdfs, then I'm all ears, or do I need a new version like PRO, other pdf software, other spreadsheet program, or other approaches to obtain the same result, like may be a workaround to hyperlink to bookmarks, I set up in adobe?


    I appreciate anyone's time and thank you in advance.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    I already read this document and it doesn't provide the answer I need. I had tried various derivations of using destinations over the weekend w/ no sucess. Excel doens't hold/recongize the page numer OR named destinations when quering from the hyperlink.

    What I really need is someone who has actually gotten this to work for themselves, if possible.

    Again, our server address is file//

    I would think I am not the only person who wants to do it. I am guessing that perhaps it is not possible due to the fact: it's a licensing and technology issue with the query from excel to adobe. I'm not a tech person, but have some skills.

    Any expertise from someone would be appreciated as I want to resolve.

    Thanks.
