How to Link Numbers in a Word Document


Microsoft Word is a feature-filled word processor with the ability to bookmark different sections. You can connect different words or numbers within a document so that when you click one number, the application will take you to another place in the document. This feature also works both ways: for example, you can click on the first number and be taken to the second number, but you can also click the second number and be taken back to the first one.

  • Highlight the first number in your Word document and click the "Insert" option in the Microsoft Ribbon, at the top of the Word window. Click "Bookmark" in the "Links" group of the Ribbon.

  • Type in a name for this bookmark and click "Add." You must start the bookmark name with a letter and not a number. Naming the bookmark is for reference only and it will not change the text within the Word document.

  • Highlight the second number and repeat the first two steps to create a bookmark for this number. If you complete these steps one after the other, Microsoft Word will already be using the "Insert" view. Be sure to bookmark the second number using a different name.

  • Highlight the text in the Word document for the number you want to link. Right-click on the text and select "Hyperlink."

  • Select the "Place in this document" option on the left-hand pane. Click "Bookmark" on the right-hand side of the pop-up window.

  • Select the bookmark you created in steps 1 and 2. Click "OK" to save this link setup. Repeat the entire process for the second number in order to create a loop.
