    Word 2010: Index page numbers aren't active links to page in the doc

    I just created an index in Word 2010. The page numbers that appear after each entry do not take me to that page in the document if I click on them. That doesn't seem right.

    Here is my field code:

    { INDEX \h "A" c\ "2" \z "1033" \e " "}

    (The space after \e is to remove commas before page numbers)

    That is the nature of Indices prepared by Word. The page numbers are not links, never have been.

    See Complex Documents - Indices

    For Work-Arounds see Index Linker - an Add-In
    an article by Cindy Meister if you want to try to do it on your own with vba. Note she has referred people who want a simple solution to the Add-In.
