I have this document open in Word (I am using Word 2000 but it should be similar in newer versions as well).
Using text formatting to create a hyperlink to another spot in a document
Say there is a lot of other information on the page, and at the bottom of the page is the text Tuesday, March 10, 2004, and I have applied a formatting of Heading 1 to it. I want to create a hyperlink from the word Today at the top of the page so that when clicked, it jumps to the date at the bottom of the page.
Step 1. To create the link from the heading of the first paragraph, highlight the text to be a link (Today)
Step 2. Click the hyperlink button on the toolbar.
Step 3. In the Edit Hyperlink dialog that opens, on the left pane click Place in This Document.
Step 4. Click the + sign beside it to open Headings, and choose Tuesday, March 10, 2004. Click OK.
Now clicking on the "Today" link at the top of the page will move the page to the bottom where is says Tuesday, March 10,2004.
Using text formatting to create a hyperlink to another web document or file
Follow the same steps 1 and 2 above and in step 3, choose Existing File or Webpage from the left link to: menu instead.
Type the address in the address bar at the bottom of the window. Click OK.
The word Today is now a hyperlink that will take you to the web address when clicked.
Using Bookmarks instead of text formatting
You can adjust this by using bookmarks instead if you don't want to link to a header, or haven't added the formatting to your document to use a bookmarl.
Step 1. First you will need to add a bookmark:
Step 2. Highlight the text you want to link from. Click the hyperlink icon on the toolbar. Instead of choosing Headings, click the + sign beside bookmarks and select your bookmark. Click OK.
Piece of cake!
