After loading the Word 2000 SR-1 disk, I am unable to insert page numbers [I get a footer that states (PAGE)] and the former blue hyperlinks are now in black and state {hyperlink and the web address}. I am writing a thesis and this is causing great stress!

Before loading the disk I had no problems.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Hi there!

This is a copy of a Word 2000 helpfile - trust it points the way to solving your problem.

Why does {PAGE}, {DATE}, or another code appear in the header or footer?
When you add page numbers, dates, times, and so on to a header or footer, Word inserts fields for these items. Fields ensure that page numbers are automatically updated as you change the document and that dates, times, and other items are updated when you print the document. If you see field codes such as {PAGE} or {DATE} instead of the actual page numbers, dates, times, and so on, press ALT+F9.

ADDENDUM
Clindeman has reported via private messaging that problem thus solved.

I'm so glad I found this post! I had the exact same problem as clindeman, and came here to find some help. Before asking I did a search with the keyword "hyperlinks", and lo and behold here's the answer!

What a place! :)
