(It seems like this must have already been asked, but I'm not finding it.)

I have a Word 2010 document, and I want to make a link in one part of the document pointing to another part of the same document. I have a table that needs to be filled out, and in the instructions about the table, I want to link to it. That way, they can easily get to the table referenced.


You have to create the place you want to link to as a "Top of Document", "Heading", or "Bookmark".

In the screenshot, I created 123 as a "Heading", and then right-clicked my "Test" text and clickedHyperlink>Place in this document, and you will see 123 there. To do it as a bookmark, highlight the target text, and go to Insert>bookmark, and it will also then show in the Hyperlink area.

    Thanks for the bookmark tip, was trying to figure out how to create a link with no header!

Right click and select "hyperlink" option on the text where you want to create hyperlink, which opens a new dialogue box. Select the second option in the left had side "Place in this Document", which gives you the content table. Select the appropriate section, then click OK.
