    I have forgotten how to make it in Word so you click a link and it takes you to a place marker (in Word 2007) something like ctrl + 1 then set a marker

    Say

    Link 1 (as a link)
    Link 2 (as a link) -clicking goes to link 2 info
    Link 3 (as a link)



    Link 1 info
    xxxxxxxxxxx

    Link 2 info
    xxxxxxxxxxx

    Link 3 info
    xxxxxxxxxxx

    Linking Within Word Document

    The World Wide Web will not be as interesting and informative as it is today without the existence of hyperlink. Hyperlink, a simple and yet powerful mechanism, is virtually a must-have in a practical website.

    Similarly, you might often come across the need to create links within a Microsoft Word Document as well, simply to ease topic-to-topic referencing. However, I find that quite a number of Word users are not aware of the technique to create a link within document.

    This article is aimed to guide the uninitiated ones to link within Word Document. To ease the discussion, let’s assume that you are creating a link in the Table of Contents (page 1), to tie with the page titled Introduction (page 4).

    Format the Linked Text as Heading

    Now, in order for the text Introduction in page 4 to be linked, you must format it as a heading.

    Microsoft Word - Styles Selection Drop-Down

    1. In the Formatting toolbar, you should have a styles selection drop-down, as shown above. This drop-down is listing all the pre-defined and customized styles that you can apply to a text.

    2. Highlight the text Introduction in page 4, and select Heading 1 from the pre-defined styles selection. Now, assuming you are using default setting, the text should be formatted as Arial 16 Bold.

    3. Go to Table of Contents in page 1, select the text that you would like to create a link, right click, and click Hyperlink on the context menu.

    Microsoft Word - Insert Hyperlink

    4. A dialog box should be displayed. Click the tab on the left titled “Place in This Document” to insert a link within the current document. In the selection panel, you shall find a node titled Headings. Under the Headings node, there is an option shown as Introduction. Just select this item, and click OK to continue.

    5. Done, you have just created a link within the Word document. You can access the link by Ctrl + Left Mouse Click.

    You can repeat steps 2-5 to insert any link within the Word document. The linked text must be applied with style of Heading, be it Heading 1, 2, 3, 4, or any other smaller heading.

    Customizing Styles and Formatting

    The pre-defined styles might not always suit your preference. After applying a style, you may directly format the text, or make a global customization at the Styles and Formatting Task Pane.

    1. Select Format > Styles and Formatting from the menu.

    2. Right click on any style, select Modify from the context menu, and customize a selected item.

    3. To create a new style, simply click on the button named New Style and proceed with the customization.

    Minus the screenshots.

    cheers. edit - I knew how to do a TOC but think it was on HTML where you give lines of text anchor points. Is the only way through TOC in Word (not ancors) ?

    Stupid monday, brain is melted :(
