Insert Bookmarks

If you are working on a long document the use of bookmarks is recommended. A bookmark identifies a location within the text where you want to edit data, insert a table, etc. at a later date. Through the use of a bookmark, you can easily return to a specific place or location in the document.

Make sure your system is configured to display bookmarks:

Go to Office Button / Word options... (Word 2007)
Click File button / Options (Word 2010)

Click Advanced
Go to Show document content section
Select the Show bookmarks check box / OK

Insert a Bookmark

Open the Word document
Select the text or item for the bookmark; or, select the place where you want to insert a bookmark.
Go to Insert Tab / Links group
Select Bookmark

The following dialog box displays

Type a name under Bookmark name:
Bookmark names must begin with a letter or number and cannot contain spaces. To separate words use the underscore feature tbl_attendance
Click Add and the dialog box closes
There is now one bookmark in the list

If a block of text was selected for the bookmark, Word surrounds the text with square brackets
