Default How do I use a cell as a Link to a Word document

With the cell selected, you can go to Insert--Hyperlink and then in the
Insert Hyperlink window that opens up, choose to link to and Existing File
or Web Page. Where it says "Look in:", you can browse to the Word document
that you would to have open and then just click on the word document itself
in the file listings. You can alter the "Text to display:" to alter what is
shown in the cell...it generally defaults to whatever the name of the Word
document is. then just click on "OK" and you're done.

Hope that helps!
