How to convert Word doc to pdf by retaining the hyperlinks (linked within the doc)?

P: 1
I find that hyperlinks created and active in Microsoft Word are still looking like hyperlinks, but no longer active. That is to say when the Adobe Reader grasping hand mouse-pointer is over the link in the PDF version of the document it doesn't change to a pointing finger, and clicking on the link has no effect.

I know it's possible to have active links in PDF documents. Question is: how is it done? Anyone able to help?

OpenOffice.org 2.2 saves Word documents as PDFs with working hyperlinks.
