Creating links to documents, views, folders, or databases

You can create a link that lets readers switch to another document, view, folder, or database. You can also create a link to a particular location in a document. You must be in a rich text field (a field that allows text, objects, file attachments, and pictures) to create a link. This is an example of a link that leads to another document:

To create a link to a particular location in a document

To customize the status bar description of a link

A document, view, or database link is automatically created with a description showing where the link goes when someone clicks it. This description appears in the status bar when a user moves the cursor over the link. You can customize the description, perhaps to provide a database server and database file name.

1. Select the link.

2. Choose Link - Link Properties.

3. Delete the text in the "Link Description" box and enter new text; click check mark to save.

Note By choosing Link - Link Properties, you can also see basic information about the link, including a description of the link, unique alphanumeric strings that identify the linked document, the specific target or frame the link jumps to (if the link was given a target), and the name of the server that the linked document resides on. This menu option only appears when there is a link in a document.
