  • You have to make them a link. When you go into your document, highlight what you want clickable, then find this, then click on that and paste in the URL you want as your link.

  • Oh wait... I see what you are saying. You can't link it unless you upload it to the internet first.. I believe.

  • Are you just typing this on your Word at your own computer? You can't make a link until you upload it to the internet.... like here, a Blog, etc...

  • the doc came to me already existing
    some of the websites listed are link able/clickable- they are blue and underlines, when i do ctrl and click- takes me to website
    some of the websites listed are just in regular old font- so i want to make those clickable to
    have tried to delete and paste in from the website address- does not work
    i have taken one that was clickable and then changed it up to make it the new address and worked but this is way time consuming and great chance of errors, so i would have to double check them all

    got to be an easier way
    just not finding it
    grrr

    hyper link not it- right?

  • weird
    found an odd way to make it work
    copied the WWW from an already clickable one
    and went to an unclickable one, clicked right after the end, then hit the return key
    and it made the whole address clickable

    weird
    i know this can not be the 'correct' way to do it...but it works
