FIELD behaviour differing between WORD and PDF output


I’m trying to generate a document from a template with the following field in the footer:

{= {PAGE} - {PAGEREF “Section{SECTION}”} + 1}

It works fine when saving the document to DOCX I get the correct number appearing in the footer, but when I save the document as PDF I get “!Syntax Error”.

On further review the issue appears to be with {PAGEREF “Section{SECTION}”} which it finds in the WORD output but returns “Error! Bookmark not defined.”

As stated previously both are generated from the same word template.

I’ve attached a sample of the word template for reference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
