Hi all,

I am trying to do a very basic stuff but unfortunaly being not aware of it, its taking me long to figure it out.
I am sure it should be simple
What I want to do is,
attch a reference number to a link of to a word may be (depends) e.g [1] , [2] ...
but make it like a hyper link, when clicked should move to the actual reference in the appendix

Can any please let me know how to achieve that.

thanks

The easiest way to do this is with bookmarks.

Highlight the word or section you wish to go to - on the insert ribbon select bookmark.  Give it a name that makes sense e.g. bmk_section1

Then go to the word that you wish to make a link to this section in the Appendix
Highlight it and click ctrl + K or insert hyperlink from the menu.  Choose the option on the left that says place in this document and select the bookmark name.
