    Create a hyperlink to a bookmarked Word document (2000/4.02.2717)

    Greetings,

    I have a bookmark in an MS-Word 97 SR-2 document (report.doc) called 'report3'.

    I have created a hyperlink in my html page to the Word document bookmark like so:


    Compliance Report</P>

    This results in nothing. I wait for a couple of seconds and the browser indicates it's accessing the document and then it says 'DONE' with no results. If I remove the bookmark portion (#report3) the document opens at the top and you have to scroll to find 'report 3'.

    Is this doable or am I setting it up incorrectly? The Word document has the bookmark set up.

    Thank you for your advice!

    Luis

    It is late and I'm feeling kinda dopey but I believe that:
    Compliance Report
    should be
    Compliance Report
    to indicate the protocol - file access being used.

    Catharine,

    Thank you for replying! You don't have to use the 'file' to have a successful link. I use it on the unix as well as microsoft servers. I have linked extensions such as '.doc, .xls, .ppt, .pdf, .txt' without the 'file' reference. However, I did try your suggestion. Still no success in reaching a bookmarked area in a Word document.

    Thanks again!

    I had no idea that this could be done ... so I tried it on a web site I maintained and it worked fine for me (w/o the "file") ... but then again I have Word 2000, and I browse with IE 5.5 (with MSWord inside of the browser)

    If I try the same thing with Netscape 6.1 ... it opens the file in MSWord directly and DOES NOT go to the bookmark.

    Ditto with using Netscape 4.74.

    So I imagine it only works when browsing with Internet Explorer ... and with Word working "inside" the browser.

    Hope this helps.
