When you produce a Word document, you can add hyperlinks in the document. The links can be to:
- An existing file or webpage (a file stored on your system or elsewhere or the webpage of another researcher)
- A place in the current document (your reader can move from page 3 to page 23 in one click)
- A place in a new document that you create on the fly (your new document...a subdocument)
- An email address (your reader's mail program launches to send an email)
P.S. You've already done this task in a slightly different form. When you create an electronic table of contents, index entry, or crossreference, you have the option of making each of these elements a hyperlink...which works in the .doc or .docx versions as well as the PDF versions. This functionality again demonstrates the many interconnected pieces and parts of MS Word.
