    Hyperlink base and bookmarks

    Using Word 97 on NT 4.0

    I have had to set the hyperlink base for my documents. However this seems to have ruined my internal document bookmarks.

    Is there anything that can be done to correct this? The only thing I can think of is to put the documents own name in the hyperlink/bookmark screen.

    Re: Hyperlink base and bookmarks

    Sorry to ask what may seem is too simple a question. But what do you mean by
    "I have had to set the hyperlink base for my documents" ? Does this have to do with some feature in NT?

    Re: Hyperlink base and bookmarks

    Rajesh,

    Sorry to be unclear.

    I have to set the hyperlink base because my Word documents are accessed from a web-site through Internet Explorer 5.5 and contain hyperlinks to each other.

    When Internet Explorer 5.5 opens a Word document it opens Word itself rather than opening Word within the browser. I know that IE/NT Registry can be changed, but this is not possible within the environment (Company Rules).

    In opening Word, the document is placed in the C:Temp directory. Thereafter all the hyperlinks, which are set up as relative, do not work until the hyperlink base is set up.

    Re: Hyperlink base and bookmarks

    You may have to edit each Hyperlink and paste the entire path of the article just before the bookmark name, for example,

    C:My DocumentsName of File Containing Destination Bookmark.doc#bookmarkname

    This makes the hyperlink absolute.

    You can consider writing a macro to do this if the workload is too heavy.

    Hope this helps.
