I want to hyperlink into a word document

I am documenting a system and I would like  to hyperlink into a particular position in a word document when I click on a link.

I considered doing this with Macro's, but that seems like the hard way. Surely there must be some common solution to this problem that does not require creating a html help project.

If it's the same document you can create a Table of Contents and link to there.  If you're looking for more you need to create bookmarks for the jump to

You need to Insert a Bookmark in the Word doc, which works like an anchor in a html page.  Then you can make a html link to it using this guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310520
as said above insert the bookmark first (the target place). then insert the hyperlink. select PLACE IN THIS DOCUMENT while inserting the hyperlink.
Test the hyperlink using ctrl+clik over the hyperlink created.
Visualize your virtual and backup environments

Create well-organized and polished visualizations of your virtual and backup environments when planning VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Veeam deployments. It helps you to gain better visibility and valuable business insights.

As has been said, the Word document needs to have bookmarks set in various locations in order to jump to them from Visio.

I've included a zip file with a Visio document with hyperlinks into a Word document. The Word document has two Heading 2s: "Background" and "Technical Specs". Using the Insert > Bookmark command on the ribbon, I assigned these two headings the bookmarks: "Background" and "TechnicalSpecs" (no spaces.)

In Visio, there are two ways to jump to the "sub-locations" within Word. You can use the Sub-address field like this:
Link to bookmark using sub address
Or you can add the # sign to the end of the document's address, then append the name of the bookmark, like this:
Link to bookmark using # signRemember in both cases, you are typing the name of the bookmark, not the heading text. They are similar in this example, but they don't need to be! I could have named them "Bookmark1" and "Bookmark2", for example.

I opened the Visio doc in Visio and need to know how I can view and/or modify the Hyperlink in Visio.

Select shape, then hit ctrl + k.

You can also edit links by right-clicking shapes, there's an option in the pop-up menu.
