    Problem with Microsoft Word - Hyperlinks


    Hi guys ,

    When I use microsoft word to add a new link , the display text don't appear , instead I get :

    { HYPERLINK "http://link.com" }

    But when I copy all the above link and paste it , it paste the text associated with it !

    check what 'view' you're in, and also the show/hide unprintable characters might have a bearing on it

    Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions." Now they have two problems.

    Highlight it with your mouse, right click, "field functions on/off" (or something similar, I've only got access to a german version...)

    So your popup menu looks different? Please post a screenshot (and tell us your version of MS Word, mine is "2000"...)
