my OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use word 2007.  Sometimes I copy a text from the web which has already a hyperlink embeded inside it, and when I paste this text into word, it comes with the hyperlink.
The Q is how do I change this link to something else.  I tried to highlight all the phrase, and then clicked on Insert, but Box containing hyperlink was grayed out.  
I am trying to avoid retyping the text.  Is there a way to do it.  Thank u
