I have a word document that has about 100 hyperlinks. Is there a way I can edit hyperlink addresses all at once with a function like Find and Replace?
The biggest problem I have here is that each hyperlink address is different. However, I only need to delete one part of hyperlink address.
For example, if the hyperlink is http://www.test.com/test1. I want to change it to http://www.test.com/test2

Your problem is easily solved by pressing Alt-F9 to reveal hyperlinks.  This displays the address of all hyperlinks (in your case, http://www.test.com/test1).  Then just do a normal search and replace to replace the text within every address which you need to replace (in your case, replace test1 with test2).  

Then, press Alt-F9 to un-reveal hyperlinks and return the document to normal view.  (This keystroke is a toggle).

Hope this helps...   Frith
