hi all

i m developing an application in which a word document is converted in pdf. my problem is too complicated plz help me out..
My word doc has a toc, bookmarks, endnotes and hyperlinks. when i save this doc as pdf, only bookmarks are converted. after a long research i found that PDF documents does not support bookmark to bookmark hyperlinks, it needs either page number or named destinations.

so i choose named destinations for this purpose, but again i stucked in , becoz simple save as can not generate named destination in the pdf doc. so i print the word doc on adobe PDF printer and i got named destination as required, but again this document neither have bookmarks in it nor hyperlinks. so what i decided that i generate two pdf from a word, first by save as option and second one is by printing.
1. test.pdf (by save as) (contains bookmarks, hyperlinks)
2. test_p.pdf( by printing) (only contains named destination)

then i research ones again and found a way to extract all named destination from test_p.pdf into XML by a function of itextsharp.but unfortunately i dont get any way to import back this xml in test.pdf.. thats why i came here.
guide me what to do next if this approch is ok. else suggest me any other approch to accomplish this mission.
