    TOC Hyperlinks with Multi Docs (Word 97)

    I've created a manual with a few chapters, each chapter is it's own document. I've also created a TOC as a separate document with the use of RD codes. No problems.

    I was wondering if there is a way to make the TOC hot. e.g., when you click an entry in the TOC for Chapter 2, page 13, the Chapter2.doc will open to page 13.

    PDF and Master Documents are out of the question. Could Binder work here? (I haven't had much experience with Binder, but I'll be looking into it.)
    Thanks
    have fun

    The hyperlink is caused by the /h in the TOC code. I wonder if you can just add it? Create a TOC in a single file and hit Alt-F9 to view the TOC code as a sample? I don't use the RD codes method, so I can't be sure it'll work.

    No such luck. I wish it could be that easy... I even tried it in binder and it didn't work. I guess this is why Master Documents is so tough for the kids at Redmond to get right.
    Thanks for the suggestion though... I was hoping I would just need this <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> smilie... oh well.

    Hi KT:

    I've looked into this before. I HOPE I'm wrong, but I don't think there's a way to do it. Not as a practical matter.

    I even considered bookmarking headings & page numbers & then creating a TOC in a "master" document by using INCLUDETEXT fields, but the upkeep is more than it's worth. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> If you ever find a way....(I'd like to have hyperlinks in indexes, too). <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I know I had asked the question before... I couldn't find it here though... maybe it was the old lounge... or another... <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
    Maybe in the release of 2046 they'll get it... right in time for retirement! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
