I'm providing a link to Dime Brothers, just in case you'd like to visit the site. Ha ha. There's some html code you need for links that Steve happily provided (and I think my brother, too, but for MySpace usage).

Links Explanation
 
When I finally understood the simple code, I said, "Got it." Steve then said, "Darn right you do, because I'm the best explainer in the world."
So I replied, "Huh? What do you mean by the best explainer?" Hardy har har!!! : ) (Thanks Steve!)

The problem is not to get a link to work. The problem is to get a hyperlink in Word to allow the target to open in a new window...any help?

Opening in link in a new window with Word
 
While you're creating the link, you have to select the 'target frame' option and select 'new window'from the drop-down menu. You should have the option to make that a default value, so you don't have to do it every time. Let us know if that works.

Code for everyone!
 
It's kinda tough to post the code, since the system reads it... but maybe I'll put it in an article... or maybe we'll add some functionality to the site (by "we'll", I mean Steve). : )

Mark and Paul, look at you two learning html. I'm very proud, but also very frightened because it looks as though you're phasing me out! *runs away in near tears*

Actually, Word 2000 doesn't offer the target frame option. Us po' people don't have 2003 yet!

New Windows
 
My guess is that the option exists, it just must not be the same steps to doing it in 2000 as it is in 2003. But, the need to have that option would've been just as prominent in 2000 as it is in 2003.

Possible Word 2000 Targeting Solution
 
I found this tutorial:

Set up your hyperlink to simply link to the document then...

Go to Tools, Options and under the view menu Show Field Codes.

It will look something like this:

{ HPERLINK "D\My Documents\Customer Form.doc" }

add t "_blank to the end of it and it should look something like this:

{ HPERLINK "D\My Documents\Customer Form.doc" t "_blank" }

When you are finished turn off Show Field Codes


Hopefully that works..
