    Hi, I have about 20 hyperlinks in a Word document. For unrelated reasons, I had to change the directory on my server that they link to. To edit the one by one is agonizingly slow. There must be a way that I can globally replace the current name of the directory with the name of the new one.

    thanks, Frank

    word use search & replace
    on the standard word screen press Alt+F9 then on the ribbon use the replace button ( or press CTRL + H to bring up the replace box)

    search for old word, replace with new word. select change all

    then press Alt+F9 again to toggle back to normal view and save document

    Hi Derek,

    Thanks for response but your solution doesn't work. The hyperlinks are hidden. I inserted them in the word document. My question is how do I change them "behind" the screen. Thanks. I hope you have a solution.

    It does work
    you need to save & close then reopen the doc for the links to update

    I I replace the word I'm after, it only brings up the word in the Word page NOT that word in the hyperlink. Am I still missing something?

    attach a copy of the word doc here so I can see
    or email it to me [email protected] and I'll take a look
    it only changed when I saved, closed & re-opened
    otherwise do the change in the AltF9 screen & then do it again on the normal screen to make sure

    it looks like you can't bulk edit with image hyperlinks only txt links. you need to manually do each one
