    Deleting all links (Word 2000)

    Does anyone have a fast and easy way to delete ALL links in a large Word document without losing any formating (ie copy as txt) and without having to do them one by one? These are internal links to tables and so on. Thanks.

    Select the entire document by pressing Ctrl+A, then press Ctrl+Shift+F9. This replaces all fields by their results. If you have fields in headers and/or footers, you will have to repeat it there.

    Are we talking about fields here? You can unlink all fields by selecting all (Ctrl-A) and then Ctrl-Shift-F9

    In XP you can also choose Edit > Links and this gives you a dialog where you can select all the links and click the Break button. I can't recall whether this was possible in Word 2000 but it may have been there.
