    Is it possible to hyperlink from Excel to Word, to a line a number in a document without using bookmarks?

    Example: hyperlink to page 2, line 10 in word_test.docx

    Help appreciated.

    I don't think so - Word repaginates a document dynamically, so "page 2, line 10" is not well-defined. You can only hyperlink to a bookmark.

    What I found so far, is that I can add "#bookmark " to the document address in the link field, and use a part of the paragraph I want to link to, and it will work. Caveat: it will go to the first ocurence of the text I used.

    Example:
    webaddress/file.docx#mycat is blue

    will look for the first string containing "mycat is blue"

    Thanks

    Glad you found something that works. Apparently that is new in Word 2007 - in Word 2002 it only works with actual bookmarks.
