My 160 page document contains 100s of hyperlinks with over 100 text anchor hyperlink destinations. When exporting to pdf, I receive no error alerts.

A little investigating has revealed that it is the latter 3/4s of the hyperlink destinations (alphabetically sorted) that fail to function. Those same hyperlinks can
