Hyperlinking to Resource Information

If there's a document or Web site relevant to a resource, you can create a hyperlink to reference it. This is a very efficient method of opening associated documents quickly. To insert a hyperlink, follow these steps:

1 Display the Resource Sheet or other resource view.

2 Click the resource to which you want to link an outside document or Web page.

Insert Hyperlink

On the Standard toolbar, click Insert Hyperlink.

In the Text To Display box, type a descriptive name for the document to which you are linking; for example, Quarterly Goals.

Find and select the document or site you want to link to your project file (see Figure 6-19).
