How to make Hyperlink in The Same Current Document in Microsoft Word

The leader of my BFS (Bankable Feasibility Study) project ask me to insert Hyperlink in every attachment I made. That idea did not cross in my mind before and I thought it would be really great. The problem is I don’t know how to insert hyperlink in the same current document in Microsoft Word. Unlike making hyperlink in Microsoft Powerpoint, the current display of hyperlink window in Microsoft Word (especially if you want to make hyperlink in the same document) is a bit different for me. Then, I browsed the tips. This is the copy of the tips I got from office.microsoft.com.

  1. To link to a place in the current document, you can use either heading styles or bookmarks in Word (in my case, I applied heading style then I applied bookmarks. Remember! You can’t type the bookmarks name with space, so use “_” to separate one word with other)
  2. In the current document, do one of the following:
    • Insert a bookmark at the location you want to go to.
    • Apply one of Word’s built-in heading styles to the text at the location you want to go to.
  3. Select the text or object you want to display as the hyperlink.
  4. On the Standard toolbar, click Insert Hyperlink Button image.
  5. Under Link to, click Place in This Document.
  6. In the list, select the heading or bookmark you want to link to.

It is really working! I expand my mind to hyperlink every figure and table on my Microsoft word file (if I have enough time 😉 ).
