Acrobat links

This situation comes up frequently for us and I'm wondering if anyone has a
good solution.

This is a multi-chapter document made up of several independent PDFs (tagged
and accessible). The 1st PDF in the series contains the Table of Contents
for the entire series.

When the user clicks the link in the Table of Contents, it opens the correct
PDF. That part is fine.

However, I'd like to take the user directly to the subhead within that PDF,
such as Heading 2 on page 9 in chapter 15.

Acrobat's linking tool only lets me open the PDF but won't let me set a
specific location or destination in that document.

Does anyone have a solution or recommendation?

FYI, this particular series of documents is in Word, totals more 1,000
pages, and will be posted on an agency's internal and external websites.
It's a fairly typical government reference manual.
