I am not very experienced with Excel. Here is what I am attempting to accomplish. I am going to create a word document that can be filled in by users. Each time a user edits the word document and saves it under a different file name from the original, it automatically creates a new line in an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet continues to populate as new word documents are saved. Users can then look at the Excel Spreadsheet, select files they would like to open and open the files through a hyperlink to the Word document. I'm not sure if this is even possible. I basically want a "table of contents" that acts as a file folder that links to each Word Document and automatically updates the "table of contents" as new files are saved. I do not want the users to be required to do any work with hyperlinks or Macros, I simply want them to save the file and the file automatically populate in an Excel Spreadsheet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
