How to Convert
Microsoft Word documents
into Useful, Hyperlinked
Medical References

A Step-By-Step Guide

 

Start with a document
in either Microsoft Word 97 or 2000.

In this example we'll be working with a file called The Elbow which contains peripheral brain style notes about elbow conditions.

Step One: Format with Headings

  • Decide which topics within the document you'll want to use as targets for hyperlinks

    • typically these are subject headings and sub-headings

  • Highlight the text for one of these hyperlink targets.

  • Change the heading by clicking on the drop-down list on the Word toolbar and assigning a heading.

  • Assign the headings hierarchically.

    • For example, in this document we'll assign :

      • Non-traumatic elbow pain to Heading 2

        • Entrapment Neuropathies to Heading 3

          • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome to Heading 4

        • Lateral Epicondylitis to Heading 3

  • Each of these headings will be able to be used as the target of a hyperlink in the next step.
