Hello,

I am trying to insert a hyperlink into a word document using this code:

  Dim objWord
   Sub Btn1_onclick()
   call OpenDoc("C:\database\test.doc")
   End Sub



   Sub OpenDoc(strLocation)

   Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")  
   objWord.Visible = True
   

    Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Open("C:\database\test.doc")
    Set objSelection = objWord.Selection
 
    objWord.Selection.TypeText("This is the text ")
    objWord.Selection.TypeParagraph()
   
    With objSelection.Find
        .Text = "Bensley"
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    objSelection.Find.Execute
   ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection.Range, Address:= _
    "http://www.website.com/index.aspx?definitionID=d091283la", _
    SubAddress:="", ScreenTip:= _
    "Screentip Text" _
    , TextToDisplay:="TextToDisplayWord"
   
    objDoc.SaveAs "c:\database\test2_no_hyperlinks4.doc"



I am using a website to do this.

The problem occurs on the ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add line... it wont add a hyperlink.  nothing happens.


Does anyone know how to fix this, or to insert a hyperlink?


Thanks,
