Clickable link(?) in a Word document

Q: Clickable link(?) in a Word document

I am doing genealogy for my family. I use Word 2000 to record my family group sheet
 
I don't know what it's called but I'd like to be able to click on someones name and have it bring me to the place where I have that person's information. I've believe I've seen that capability in some documents.
 
For example, I have my parents family group sheet in which I am listed as their son.
Then on another page is my familys group sheet
So I'd like to be able to click on my name Lawrence (which I expect would be in blue underline font) in my parents family group sheet and be brought to my name Lawrence (I don't know whether or not would be in blue underline font) in my family group sheet
 
How do I do that?

Preferred Solution: Clickable link(?) in a Word document

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its
full path and name.  Note that that would be quite different from what the Copy Shortcut step would have shown.
Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:
    ftype  |  find  /i  "word"
Then you could take the most appropriate template (not necessarily the one pointed to by the assoc command) and fill it in on a Run... dialog (or a ... Read more

I answered the questions, and know what links I want to post along with them, but when I copy and paste them they have not been clickable. They don?t open. I don?t have this problem making them clickable usually they just become clickable right after I copy and paste.

I read that there is a insert edit link button that looks like a chain, but I don?t have that anywhere...this is a google document written interview questionaire. I tried on a desktop computer operating with windows 7 and I tried on my iPad. No luck! When I send those same links through text on my iPhone they work and open.

In setting up an elderly aunt's computer, I am trying to create a detailed "How to..." file for her in Word 2000. I would like to create a menu at the top of the topics I have How To articles on and make them so she can click on them and it will go to that subject. Then place a Back to top for her so she can go back up to the menu with a single click like I have seen in html files. Can this be done in Word? If so, can you tell me how or tell me what to search for in Word to find the instructions?

Thanks

A:Clickable menu in Word 2000

Ideally you'd go for a Table of Contents, but that can get quite complicated, IMO.

If you won't have too many topics (say no more than a dozen), try creating a bookmark for each topic title (in the menu and the document) and hyperlinking to the article from the menu and vice versa.

Another way would be to forget the menu, use a style (e.g. Heading 1) for each topic title and then use the Document Map to navigate (the Document Map button ought to be on her Standard toolbar -- looks like a magnifying glass over a table). I've seen quite a few ppl say "avoid Document Map like the plague", but if it's just plain text then it might be worth a try.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

A:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

A:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes.

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Hey Folks.

This is annoying the hell out of me so I thought I'd ask.

On the start menu you have the "Documents" link under the user name. Mine takes me to library link to My Documents but it won't keep the icons the right size. If I go via the start menu Document link then into My Pictures it keeps the icon sizes as medium. I prefer large icon sizes for My Pictures but if I change it and back up all my icons are then large size.

So, can I change the document link on the start menu from a library to a straight link to a folder where I keep my documents? Or delete it and add my own link instead?

It's just really annoying me now and I'm probably going to format my PC again tonight.

If I go via the start menu Document link then into My Pictures it keeps the icon sizes as medium. I prefer large icon sizes for My Pictures but if I change it and back up all my icons are then large size.

So, can I change the document link on the start menu from a library to a straight link to a folder where I keep my documents? Or delete it and add my own link instead?

It's just really annoying me now and I'm probably going to format my PC again tonight.

Ta for any help.



No problem...

Right click on the Windows Orb on the taskbar...
Then select Properties from the menu...
On the dialog's "start menu tab" click "Customize"...
Set it up as you need it.

For the icon size thing... If you set the icon size and/or display properties in a given folder and then close it, it will write a hidden file in that folder and remember your settings. The next time you come to that folder it should show up as you're used to.

Hi,

I am not sure if this is possible in word, but say I have document A. I place document A within document x, document y, and document z. Is it possible to make changes to document A and have the changes updated automatically to documents x, y, and z?
I hope this makes sense.

Thanks

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

Hi,

I want to put links in my text, for use on the same machine or mobile media (CDs or floppies).
I'm using Notepad a lot, but this cant be done in Notepad. I am thinking of putting the address line into notepad, so that this can be copy-pasted into RUN
as a crude form of link, but i am hoping that RTF or Wordpad has the facility to insert a link but i have not been able to find info on this.

Apparently i can insert an 'object' in RTF, but that doesnt seem to be the same thing.

The links i want to insert would be mainly for pictures, and would probably take the form of ... "you can see a picture of this HERE" ... or maybe "to see a pic of this click on this link: C/Picture/item.jpg"

I feel this is a fairly simple action, which might be why i cannot find any info on how to do it.

Cheers, John

Hi

I was wondering if the above can be achieved?
My scenario is I have an issues log and the file name is saved as the issue title is there a way to get the saved file name into another workbook appearing as a hyper link back to the original?

I am assuming VBA will be needed and added on to the code below which i already have, the code takes the value of C9 (the issue title) and saves it in the right folder.
Code:

If Range("C9") = "" Then
Msgbox "Please ensure you fill out the Issue Title. Thanks"
Else
Saveactiveworkbook.saveas "C:\filename\filename\ & Range("C9")"
Msgbox " Thank you, your issue has now been saved."
Endif

Please help! I have a word document I am quite certain was saved to my desktop, only now I am unable to locate the file. I have visited recent documents in Word, it sees the document, but when I click to open the file, a pop-up appears that says the path does not exist.

I have performed a search for the file on my computer (searching all drives and files). I find the document, but again, it says the path does not exist. When I search for it this way, it shows that it is a shortcut on my computer and suggests it may have been moved. However, the search does not find it anywhere else.

I have also searched in the hidden files and folders but the document I need is not there either.

Can someone please help with other ideas of where I can try to locate the document?

Thank you for helping this girl in distress!

A:Word Document is MIA

The best search tool I know of is Everything. It's free from voidtools.com. It's fantastic. Keep it around.

It will quickly index your drive. You then enter at least a portion of the file name into the search box and it should find it just about as fast as you can type the name.

There's always a chance you deleted it or the file became corrupt for unknown reasons.

The "recent documents" list won't help if you moved it away from that location on purpose or accidentally, but you knew that.

A:Help with word document!

Retrieve in it word, then watch the box at the bottom of the screen as you file or save it as a .doc file, then review the ?xml info.

The Document Object Model (DOM) class is an in-memory representation of an XML document. The DOM allows you to programmatically read, manipulate, and modify an XML document. The XmlReader class also reads XML, however it provides non-cached, forward-only, read-only access. This means that there are no capabilities to edit the values of an attribute or content of an element, or the ability to insert and remove nodes with the XmlReader. Editing is the primary function of the DOM. It is the common and structured way that XML data is represented in memory, although the actual XML data is stored in a linear fashion when in a file or coming in from another object.
There is plenty of useful information on xml documents and file structure in the Microsoft knowledge base, or even with a Google search.

I am using Windows Vista and I have Microsoft Office 2007. I have a HP Photosmart D110 Series scanner/printer. I have been told that I can produce *.doc documents from scanned JPG or PDF formats. I have not been able to achieve this, nor have I found anyone who can help me do it. All, however tell me that I should be able to do it.

I have tried Microsoft Document Imaging, but all Format is lost and the font is all the same font and text size, whereas the original had more than one font and varied test sizes.
