I have a word doc formatted with Heading styles 1, 2, 3, 4.  I have made a hyperlink based on the heading.  It works fine.
However, when I edit the document, such that sections move around, or I insert a section such that the hyperlink location now i.e.becomes section 12.4 where it used to be 12.3 - the hyperlink no longer works.  It goes to the "old location" .. in this case 12.3 - which is now a totally different section.
Is there any way to keep the hyperlinks working when the document is edited after inserting the hyperlinks?  It seems like this shoul just work!
BTW - I've tried saving and re-opening the document.  I've also tried F9 to refresh.

Thanks much...Susan
