Add 'page number' links in existing Microsoft Office 2010 Document

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
Version 14.0.6129.5000 (64-bit)

I have an existing word document with (47) pages, each of which are numbered at the bottom, in the footer.  The document begins with a (2) page index stipulating which pages the items are on.

Some items span multiple pages, while multiple items indexed can also be listed using the same page number.

How can I link them together so that, when you click on any item in the index indicated with page 7, it will take you directly to page 7, or the beginning of the section when multiple pages are indicated?

It isn't possible in the user Index creation process to set up hyperlinks from the index entries to the indexed items.

However this can be done for a Table of Contents.

For the Index, if there are only a few items, you could set up Hyperlinks individually. For many items, it might be possible to use a VBA macro.

If you are using References / Index / Mark Entry to create your Index entries, and then using Insert Index to create the Index itself, then your page references will update automatically each time you refresh the Index field.

You can create a table of figures in a similar way that you create a TOC.

First, you insert a 'Caption' (either Table caption or Figure caption) for each figure (either immediately above or below) you want in the index: References tab -> Captions options Insert Caption function.FIRST: Insert CaptionsOnce you have all the captions inserted, go to the begenning of the document (preferably, on a new page) and insert the Table of figures:  References tab -> Captions options Insert Table of Digures function.Insert TableYou now have hyperlinks for each item in the document.
