Hi everyone!

I have searched around and found that if you place a hyperlink ending with #x where x is the page number of the Word document you wish to link to, it will link to page x of said document.

However, I am not having any luck! It links to the document, but only to the first page snd not the page of choice.

I am running Office 2003 if it is of any help.

Can anyone help me?

Cheers.

Phil

I wasn't able to do this without creating a bookmark in the Word document. Just append a pound sign (#) and the name of the bookmark to the end of your hyperlink, ex: c:\homev02\INFO.doc#page2

You might be able to get away with c:\homev02\INFO.doc#2 to go to that page, but I couldn't do it in XL/Word 2000. Hope that helps!
