    hyperlinks WITHIN one document (Word 2003 SP1)

    I am creating Word documents that must have hyperlinks... some links will be to other Word documents, some will be to web sites, and some will be to Table captions within the SAME Word document.

    The first 2 were easy to create. Initially they are blue and underlined text; when clicked they open the other Word doc or web site and the text changes color. How do I establish links that behave like this within the SAME Word document?

    I have tried using cross-references but the text is not blue and underlined to begin with. I tried to force it by using the character style Hyperlink, but the style only remains constant on the "See" of "See Table 1" (Table 1 being the cross reference field). When I print the document, the hyperlink style (blue, underlined that will change color when clicked) disappears from "Table 1." Bookmarks did not seem to work because of the limitation of naming the bookmarks (cannot use spaces). I am hoping there is an obvious, easy answer that I am missing as I have a few of these to do!!

    TIA,
    Georgette

    Although a bookmark name cannot contain spaces, the display text for a hyperlink to a bookmark can consist of multiple words.
    - Select the text you want to create a hyperlink to (the table caption).
    - Copy the text to the clipboard (Ctrl+C).
    - Select Insert | Bookmark...
    - Enter a name for the bookmark.
    - Click Add.
    - Go to the location in the document where you want the hyperlink.
    - Select Insert | Hyperlink...
    - Click on Place in This Document in the places bar on the left hand side.
    - Click on the name of the bookmark you just inserted.
    - Click in the box labeled 'Text to display', select the proposed text and paste (Ctrl+V).
    - Click OK.
    You can change the display text for existing hyperlinks by right-clicking them and selecting Edit Hyperlink... from the popup menu.

    It works, it works!!! Many thanks. I wish that I could find better directions for this dialog box in general... it is somewhat confusing.

    I knew someone in the Lounge help. Again, many thanks for your wonderful explanation.
