    use hyperlinks instead of page numbers (Word 2002)

    Hiya

    For the Word 2002/XP setting Insert>Reference>Index and Tables>use hyperlinks instead of page numbers.
    Currently we have this option turned on. I would like this setting turned off. I know how to turn it off within Word.
    Does anyone know how to set this setting as a registry key?

    By the way does anyone know any good web-sites /forums which specialises in Windows/Office registry key settings?

    many thanks ....Diana

    Diana,

    Another way at this would be through the use of the Custom Installation Wizard, the Custom Maintenance Wizard, and/or system policies. You can find a bunch of information on these in Microsoft's Office XP Resource Kit info here and here.

    I've never used these, so can't give any advice other than to point out their existence.

    I don't know if there is a registry setting that controls the default value of "use hyperlinks instead of page numbers"; if it exists, it is part of the Settings value in the HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice10.0WordDa ta key. This is a binary value that cannot be interpreted or modified easily.

    Hi Gary

    I've created an .OPS file with my XPOffice settings. Unfortunately the .OPS file doesnt capture this setting (& other officeXP settings I wanted). so I'm going to have to set it an alternative way.
    perhaps via code on Open & set the Word environment setting then?

    I may be wrong, but I get the impression that there is no easy way to change the default setting for "Use hyperlinks instead of page numbers." Even if you clear the check box for a table of contents, it will be ticked again if you try to insert another TOC into the same document.

    hey hans

    yes i think your right, theres no easy way to change the default setting for "Use hyperlinks instead of page numbers."
    I was thinking to write some code when Words OnOpen to uncheck the setting however it only performs the and applies the settings to that Table of Contents/or Table of Figures inserted. not as a 'global setting'

    thats why I like to set the registry its just easier.
    you mentioned registry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice10.0WordDa ta key.
    i may give this ago & see what I come up with.

    Hi Diana:
    Why don't you just create a TOC with the code & switches that you want & save it as an AutoText entry. This is even easier (IMHO) than using the menu to create a TOC.
