    Hello! I recently installed Office 2007 Pro on a new PC running Windows Home Premium 64-bit. I have had the 32-bit version of Office 2007 on an older PC running Windows XP Pro 32-bit for over a year. In my older installation I've been accustomed to typing or pasting a hyperlink or an email address into an Office document (Word, email editor, Contact sheet, etc.) and then hitting Enter to turn the string into a live link. In my 64-bit installation it won't do that. Any ideas on how to paste something like

    into an Office document and make it a live link?

    Thanks, - Dave

    In Word 2003, this is controlled by one of the "AutoFormat as you Type" settings. Not sure where that dialog now appears in Word 2007.

    As for Outlook Contacts, hmmm, I'm not sure what controls that.

    I have no problem with Win 7 Pro or Ultimate x64 and Office 2010 x86 creating links. I do not recall any problems with Win7 x64 & Office 2007.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Win 7 & Office 2007 PC to test. I only have one Office 2007 machine left and it has XP Pro and acts as yours does.

    Do you just get text?
