I want to thank Sandy, Char, Kathleen and John for their help in solving my
Word 2010/PDF problem, especially Char and John for offering to try to make
the PDF using their Acrobat 9. Unfortunately, the document is packed with
proprietary and customer specific information. To compound the problem, the
company I am contracting to is moving to Germany by the end of the year and
try as I may, I could not find anyone available who would authorize me
sending this file for testing. So, instead, I just spent a wonderful weekend
copying informant form the offending document into a new document, one
section at a time. I have narrowed the problem to the first three
subsections of Section 6, a subsection full of tables. So, in summary, I
have a table problem. Luckily it rained most of Saturday and the beer locker
was full of Magic Hat Wacko, an appropriately names summer ale.

Again, thanks for offer to help.
