Use href to launch a specific page within a Word doc

Hi ,

Can you use a href to launch a WOrd document on a specific page? Something like www.somewebsite.com/mydocument.doc#_page4... ???

I know you can do it with PDFs but our client doesnt want to convert the Word document to PDF.

Any help will be appreciated!

I'm pretty sure you can link to bookmarks in that method.  For example, if you created a bookmark called "bookmark1" in your Word document.  You could link directly to it with:

http://www.website.com/yourdocument.doc#bookmark1

I think word uses 's' and 'p' to specifiy sections and pages (at least when printing).  You might try something like:

http://www.website.com/yourdocument.doc#p4

After checking around a bit, I can't find any way to link directly to a specific page.  I'm afraid it may not be possible.  However, the bookmarks should work.  You could link to a bookmarked table of contents in the document, or just add bookmarks for every page.  It may depend on your version of Word though.

Hope that helps!

I think if you save the word document in MHT format that will do it.
