    Hyperlink (2002)

    I have a multi-section document. I would like to create links within on document to specific sentences within another page in the same document. I have used hyperlinks however it only takes me to a specific page and not directly to the text.

    Can someone advise on how I can go to specific text within a document?

    Are you using bookmarks or using a table of contents?

    No. This document does not have a TOC. I don't know how bookmarks work. Perhaps this is what I need.

    Would they serve the purpose?

    Tables of Content or (TOC) are great to create an index of your long document and much easier to create. I use them for Functional Specs which go on for a bit. The secret is that every major heading is Heading 1 and secondary headings Heading 2....down to as many headings that you want.

    After you have created your document then: Insert | Reference | Index and Tables....

    This will automatically create the index at an insertion point in your document. Much easier than bookmarks.

    Here is a nice TOC tutorial

    You want the insertion point to move to a particular place, or have certain text selected, rather than just having Word display the text in that place? If so, I think that bookmarks would be a better bet than hyperlinks.

    To create a bookmark, click in a relevant place (or select text) and use Insert>Bookmark... and give it a name (like test1). Then you can go to your bookmark using Edit>GoTo... or the Insert>Bookmark... dialog. But to reconnect this with something you can click, hmmm, maybe a button of some kind...
