    Hello,
    beside making the links clickable it is always a good idea to spell out the full url inside the pdf as most people do not have it configured to work properly.

    I guess I shouldn't comment because I've never used your software, but I can recommend Open Office. It's free, you can write out your document and edit its appearance as you like, then convert it to PDF with one click, links kept intact.

    Word 2003 by itself won't usually create a pdf file. I'm using 'DeskPDF" which installs much like a printer (in fact, it shows in the print menu) and all of my links are clickable in the resultant pdf file. Bear in mind that I'm using word 2003, and bought deskPDF about 5 years ago (or maybe more).

    Another way to do it (already mentioned by previous posters) is to use Open Office. It provides a Microsoft Office compatible series of applications, and creates PDF files without an external app like DeskPDF.
