MS Word Doc >> Hyperlink Troubleshooting

Two of my hyperlinks are mapped to a document that has since undergone a
filename change. There are over 160 hyperlinks in my current document and I
donâ??t know how to find the errant two. (Iâ??m processing this current document
in my online help application, and am going by what it is telling me in the
log.)

Is there a way to generate a hyperlink report? How can I find the incorrect
hyperlinks?

Iâ??m using Word 2003 on XP. Thanks!

MS Word Doc >> Hyperlink Troubleshooting Do you know the old names for those two documents? if yes then you can find
them using edit\find.

MS Word Doc >> Hyperlink Troubleshooting Using Find is the easiest wa to find the two errant links; if you need to
generate the a full list at the end of a document with the heading "LIst of
hyperlinks in this document, create the following macro

Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
Selection.InsertBreak Type:=wdPageBreak
Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 3")
Selection.TypeText Text:="List of hyperlinks in this document"
Selection.TypeParagraph

Dim hlHyperlink As Hyperlink
For Each hlHyperlink In ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks
Selection.TypeText Text:=hlHyperlink.Name
Selection.TypeParagraph
Next

For how to copy this macro and use it, see the following:
