Dear all,

All of a sudden, hyperlinks stopped working in Word documents (I've got Office 2007).
Instead, all hyperkinks are showing like this: {HYPERLINK “http://www.proz.com/”} and are not redirecting to the respective sites.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Thanks! Jul 29, 2010

Dear Kate,

Thank you very much for your help. Alt + F9 did not work out in my case. So, I tried the other suggestion and now the hyperlink problem is solved!

Below are the steps for Word 2007, in case someone else gets the same problem:

Click on the Office button
Select Word options
Select Advanced
Scroll down and in the section “show document content” uncheck “show field codes instead of their values”
Click OK

Note: the box “show field codes instead of their values” was already unchecked in my computer, so I just had to click on OK.

All the best
