    hyperlinks within one document (2000)

    We have a document that is using hyperlinks to connect numbers throughout the document to the bibliography at the end of the doc. We had to add a new number and link in the middle of the document to a new entry in the bibliography. Having done so, the subsequent numbers in the document did not update (i.e. move up one number) - however, the numbers in the bibliography did change. The bibliography is an auto-numbered list. We have tried Update Field ofr individual links and the whole doc - that hasn't worked. How can we get the reference, linked numbers in the doc to correspond with the revised numbers in the bibliography?

    Re: hyperlinks within one document (2000)

    Hi Nancy:
    By hyperlinks, do you mean cross-references? Or did you insert hyperlinks to bookmarks where the bibliography was bookmarked? I'm wondering whether endnotes & endnote references would serve your purpose, but I may have missed the mark entirely. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: hyperlinks within one document (2000)

    I inserted hyperlinks to bookmarks in the bibliography. I looked up endnotes in Help and they definitely sound like what I want. However, just out of curiosity, is there a way to get the hyperlinks to change? Which would be easier?

    Thanks so much for your quick response!

    Thanks again Phil - I started over using endnotes from the get-go and it went quickly and well.

    Re: hyperlinks within one document (2000)

    Hi Nancy:
    I'm not sure how I would convert hyperlinks to endnotes. I know that you could convert the hyperlink field to an endnote reference mark. However, you'd still have to cut & paste each of the bibliography entries into the appropriate endnote.

    I haven't tried this, so I recommend that you try it on a COPY of your document. Note that this will only work if ALL your hyperlinks refer to the bibliography because all the hyperlink fields will be converted to endnote reference marks (I think).

    1. Insert an endnote reference mark somewhere in the copy.
    2. Now cut it to the clipboard.
    3. Press Alt+F9 so all field codes are showing.
    3. Bring up Find/Replace by pressing Ctrl+H.
    4. In the Find box type:
    ^19 HYPERLINK That's a space between the 9 & the H
    5. In the replace box type:
    ^c This is the symbol to replace the found text with the clipboard contents
    6. Click replace all.

    However, you will now have to go & cut each of the bibliography entries & paste them into the respective endnote places. Actually, if you change to Print Layout view & you split the screen (Alt+Ctrl+S), you should be able to see both the bibliography & the endnote locations at the same time. If any of this is unclear, please post back.
    Cheers,
