    Word TOC Links (Word 2003)

    I have a document which was down-loaded from a web site to my hard drive. If I click on the TOC entry page number, it takes me back to the web site, when normally it should take me to a heading within the document. I replaced the TOC field code, saved the document again, with the same results. What's going on?

    Could you attach (a reduced copy of) the document?

    I forgot to mention that the problem of going to a web site occurs with me and several others. It works properly for some. I checked all Word options and couldn't find an inconsistency there.

    I get an error message when I ctrl+click the page number. I cannot determine what causes this. You can get rid of it by copying the entire contents of the document into a blank new document.

    It may be because of the "Hyperlink base" in File | Properties | Summary. Remove that and the TOC link seems to work.

    I would have never found it! I appreciate all of your help.
