You all know hyperlinks by now I am
sure. Go online, click on a link and be taken to a new source of information.
Hyper-linking is what has kept many of us away from our work by surfing
too long on the web. But did you know you could create hyper links in
Microsoft (MS) Word documents?
Perhaps you have a lengthy document with
lots of references to other locations with in the document. With documents
being read online these days, why not hyperlink your information?
Open one of your long documents, say you volunteer orientation
manual. Choose a section, let's say the Time Sheet you have in the
Appendix. Highlight something in that document, perhaps "TIME
SHEET" then choose: Insert>Bookmark. In the field labeled
bookmark, give the highlighted section a name. Say, "Timesheet"
(note that the bookmark name must not have any spaces between words).
Then click on Add.
Next, go to the section in your Orientation Manual that refers to
the Time Sheet. Highlight a section, again say, "Time Sheet"
and click on Insert>Hyperlink. Choose: Place in This
Document as seen on the left side of the window. Find Bookmarks
in the window and click on 'Timesheet" and click on OK. Bingo,
away you go.
Test it out by clicking on the hyperlink "Time Sheet"
and watch as it takes you to the Appendix and your Time Sheet. Notice
that in the upper left of the Menu bars, there are Forward and Back
arrows. Click on the back arrow and you return to the main part of
the Manual that you just left.
Wow, this is some formula! Be sure it is
accurate. Try copying and pasting from this site. Make sure there are
no spaces between words and formulas. This is actually one really long
line forced into several because we cannot display it as one long formula.
You may have to copy and paste several pieces of it to get it into Excel
- so be sure that it is in proper order.
You should end up with something like this:
Now if you enter someone's birth date
in cell A1 (upper left corner), you will get their age in cell A2 (where
you entered that really long formula).
