    Adding a Hyperlink to a Word form

    I'm trying to add one or more hyperlinks to a Word form, but everytime I lock the form the hyperlink doesn't work. Is this a Microsoft Word "feature"?
    Can somebody help me?
    Thanks,
    J. Rod

    It is a feature of locked forms that hyperlinks in the protected portion of the form are not active. You can use a macrobutton instead. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/fields.htm#MacroButton>MacroButtons (unfinished)</A> for more on macrobuttons.

    You can even make it look like a hyperlink by toggling field codes (put your insertion point in the macrobutton using the arrow keys and press Shift-F9) and selecting your link text. Ctrl-S (style) and type "hyperlink" (without
    the quote marks). Press Enter. Then press F9 to update your field.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi Charles:

    I'm sure you meant Ctrl+Shift+S (style)..."

    Cheers,
