Creating a link in a pdf to a specific page from a label

We still have some crews with a need for a digital pdf map book as some areas of our service territory have poor data connections in the field.

We generate a pdf map book.  The cover page index contains links we create  to jump to a specific page/bookmark in the PDF. Creating them one by one is somewhat cumbersome and can be inaccurate.

What I would like to know is if anyone knows the URL code to link to individual pages inside the same PDF. So I could make them as labels in ArcGIS Pro so when the PDF is generated I can use the auto create to generate the internal links.

I have figured out the URL to open a specific page. However, it opens a new instance of the same PDF.

#    '<url><a HREF="file:///C:/MapBook/myfile.pdf#page=4">file:///C:/MapBook/myfile.pdf#page=4</a></url>'

This code when used as the label (the 4 is the page number and will be replaced with $feature.pagenum) can be used to create the proper hyperlink in Acrobat.
