    Word - Forms (Word 2002 SP1)

    Is it possible to create a form in Word with a hyperlink in a field?
    What I want to do is have Users enter a unique ID in a field but in order for them to know what the next number in the sequence is I want to hyperlink to an Excel spreadsheet where the next number will be obtained.
    What I have done at the moment is put a note in the field and placed the hyperlink to the register in another section of the form which is not protected.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Does this web page help at all. MVPS Hyperlinks in Forms

    An alternate way is to use VBA to find the next available number either pulling it from an ini file, database or document variable.
