Hi MrFash1, Inserting a hyperlink isn't very hard, but you will need the full version of Adobe Acrobat, and not just the free Reader. You can get a free 30 day tryout version of Acrobat Pro here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatpro/tryout.html If you wish to purchase Acrobat Pro the best price I've found for it is here for $139: http://www.micromasteronline.com/store/1198prod.html To insert a hyperlink in a PDF is quite simple. Using the example of the file you linked to, let's say you wanted a hyperlink on the text heading APC Series. In Acrobat 6.0 Pro you need to: - click the Select Text button (on the button bar beside the hand) to get a text selection cursor. - right-click the highlighted text and select 'Create Link'. - select 'Open a web page' and enter its address, or link to another file or page in the document, depending on what you want the link to do. And that's all there is to it. Some PDF files may be created with access restrictions that prevent you from editing them. In this case it will not be possible to add hyperlinks unless you are the creator of the document. I hope this helps you out. Hibiscus
