Hyperlinks Collection Object

Office 2007
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.

Visual Basic for Applications
For Each hLink In Documents(1).Hyperlinks
    If InStr(hLink.Address, "Microsoft") <> 0 Then
        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.

Visual Basic for Applications
ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Address:="http://www.msn.com/", _

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.

Visual Basic for Applications
If Selection.HyperLinks.Count >= 1 Then
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.
