accesing MS Word bookmark from an URL

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm trying to add a feature to a web application where you can click on a link that opens a word document and focuses to a bookmark in the document. (The app is run on Internet Explorer)

I thought it would be possible using a URL such as:

//http://localhost/MyWordDoc.doc#bookmark1

But alas it doesn't seem to work.

does anyone have any suggestions. is this even possible,
margarita

i have not herd of this using word documents, in web pages it is a commom pracites. your second part of the url looks good (MyWordDoc.doc#bookmark1) but the first part could be something like c:/ if it is on your computer, you dont neet http: instead use file: such as file:c:/documents/MyWordDoc.doc#bookmark1

hope that makes sense.

Do you have an anchor called bookmark1?

I really don't like using MS Word to make HTML files...I suggest Nvu. Just copy-and-paste your file into the editor, and it will write HTML for you. If you know HTML, then you don't have a problem.

Please remember to post back with the results. Thanks!
