Hyperlinks object (Word)
Represents the collection of Hyperlink objects in a document, range, or selection.
Use the Hyperlinks property to return the Hyperlinks collection. The following example checks all the hyperlinks in document one for a link that contains the word "Microsoft" in the address. If a hyperlink is found, it is activated with the Follow method.
For Each hLink In Documents(1).Hyperlinks If InStr(hLink.Address, "Microsoft") <> 0 Then hLink.Follow Exit For End If Next hLink
Use the Add method to create a hyperlink and add it to the Hyperlinks collection. The following example creates a new hyperlink to the MSN Web site.
ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Address:="https://www.msn.com/", _ Anchor:=Selection.Range
Use Hyperlinks (Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Hyperlink object in a document, range, or selection. The following example activates the first hyperlink in the selection.
If Selection.HyperLinks.Count >= 1 Then Selection.HyperLinks(1).Follow End If
The Count property for this collection in a document returns the number of items in the main story only. To count items in other stories use the collection with the Range object.
