# pdfTeX warning: has been referenced but does not exist, replaced by a fixed one, with German Umlaut

I'm new to LaTeX, and have been given a LaTeX draft for writing a thesis. Everything works fine except for this warning:

see the transcript file for additional information)pdfTeX warning (dest): name{ehrenw\366rtliche\040erkl\344rung.1} has been referenced but does not exist, replaced by a fixed one


Here is the position in the code:

\refstepcounter{dummy}
\pdfbookmark[1]{Ehrenwörtliche Erklärung}{ehrenwörtliche erklärung}
\chapter*{Ehrenwörtliche Erklärung}
\thispagestyle{empty}


When I don't use German Umlauts(ä,ö,ü), i.e.

\pdfbookmark[1]{Ehrenwoertliche Erklaerung}{ehrenwoertliche erklaerung}


it works fine! I don't get any warnings and the link works.

I've been Googling for 2 weeks for similar warnings, and trying things out but none worked. Any one with similar experience or ideas how to get this fixed.

I'm using MAC 10.8 with MacTeX-2012

 The order in which you load the packages can matter, especially with hyperref. If you are using that, try loading it last. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1863/… – yasmar Oct 22 '12 at 15:17

Load the bookmark package:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}% http://ctan.org/pkg/inputenc
\usepackage{hyperref}% http://ctan.org/pkg/hyperref
\usepackage{bookmark}% http://ctan.org/pkg/bookmark
\begin{document}
\pdfbookmark[1]{Ehrenwörtliche Erklärung}{ehrenwörtliche erklärung}
\chapter*{Ehrenwörtliche Erklärung}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\end{document}

 Hi Werner, Thanks 4 ur answer. Unfortunately it didn't work, i also installed, updated the oberdiek package sudo tlmgr update oberdiek and sudo -i tlmgr update --all`, still the link didn't work. when clicking on the chapter it jumps back to the first page. With ur example i get the same warning. My Tex Version: TeX 3.1415926 (TeX Live 2012) kpathsea version 6.1.0 Copyright 2012 D.E. Knuth. – Fadi Asbih Aug 21 '12 at 9:02
