Is this Autotext or something else? (Word 2000)

  Diemmess 14:48 08 May 2006

A table of people with proper names column 1 and their web addresses in column 2

Trying to edit and move the names around I seem to have lost control of whether this is a link or not! Now some are and some are not.

Have searched Tools, Options etc, but still baffled.

web addresses in column 2
to make all adresses links:
Select column 2 in font box on toolbar select hypertext.

I'm dim or desperate, perhaps both.

I can highlight the email address column - no trouble..... Font box? Font list is not what I want is it?
Tried Format-Font but there's no option there to make a link.

The odd thing is that I am ammending a document written by someone else and 5 out of the 7 behave as intended. It is just my two new inserted names that wont work for me. (same font, same column etc.)

I have been struggling much of the day, trying to re-vamp a dormant website. The learning curve is about 99 degrees for me!

So out of time and enthusiasm for this silly glitch with Word, but thanks to you both, plenty to chew on tomorrow.

Will tick this WHEN I've had a triumphal session!

I had already tried various re-typings and usually found the toolbar make-a-link greyed out.

Eventually managed with one of the names to drag it out of the table, remove its new cell border. On clicking the link found a form requiring me to enter the mailto: address.
When I did this and clicked in the document it gave a dismissive 'cant open file, error...OK!

There was a clue somewhere about starting the address with http:// I did that and Word eventually gave me what I wanted.
