Find and Replace every occurrence with a bookmark hyperlink

Hello, I have a large document with references to "Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request".  I want to replace each occurrence of this phrase with a hyperlink to the bookmark I made for "Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request" at the end of the document.  

How can I do that?   Let me know if you need additional explanation.

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro1()

With Selection.Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .Text = "Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request"
    .Replacement.Text = ""
    .Forward = True
    .Wrap = wdFindContinue
    .Execute
End With

Do While Selection.Find.Found = True

    ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection.Range, Address:="", _
        SubAddress:="Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request", ScreenTip:="", TextToDisplay:="Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request"

Oh I see it is not something canned inside of Word.  I was hoping that there was.  I guess code is the only way.  Let me know if there is another way inside of Word.    thank you

how would I reference the bookmark that ties to the "Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request"?  I entered a bookmark that ties to the "Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request" and need to tie it to all of the hyperlinks.  Not sure if you follow me.  

thank you

You can do it without a macro.

Create the first instance of the hyperlink normally, then select it and copy it. Then, in the Find and Replace dialog, type Schedule D Form of Disbursement Request in the Find what box. In the Replace with box, type ^c (which is the token for Clipboard contents if you use the Special pulldown button). Replace All will change all instances of the phrase to the phrase set with the hyperlink.
