Creating an html link to a bookmark in a Word Document stored in a Sharepoint Document Library. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of sending out an email and would like to create a link in the email to a bookmark location in a Word Dcoument.  We are able to link to the bookmarks if the document is NOT stored in SharePoint, but the moment we try to link to a document stored in sharepoint ...  it no longer works.  Has anyone found a work around to this?

  • Hi,

    It is by design that Hyperlink to bookmark does not highlight/select bookmark when document is stored in SharePoint.

  • Hi

    first

    you reffer to a bookmark like

    document_name.docx#bookmark_name

    You reffer to a document in a document library like

    http://domain/path/document_library/document.name.docx

    So the bookmark should look like

    http://domain/path/document_library/document.name.docx#bookmark_name

    Create the hyperlink like this

  • We have done that, but the document opens in word, but at the top of the document.  If I move the document to a fileshare, it opens to the appropriate bookmark.
