    this is what i learned from word help.

    try as i did.

    1. if you had developed a contents with paragraphs with or without numbering or with any format of styling. create a book mark one the first word from where you want to show up or begin to start with that line as a first line when you clicked any word or letter to which you wanted to have reference.

    2. similarly you can book mark any where in that document which you like to view as reference to some of your question to be linked or referred.

    3. select the word or line or letter to which you want to jump for reference. right click and select hyperlink. in the followed window opened select from the same documents. you can find the book marks to which you want to refer.

    4. select the desired book mark to which you are referring and click ok,or confirm. automatically the pop up window will close confirming you selection.

    5. now go to your word or sentence or line to which you want to show up or jump to particular portion of the segment. click and you will be taken to the start of the line from where you already book marked.

    6. enjoy and try more ...... interesting u know.

    You're talking about a Table of Contents with links to the entries it contains. This is automatic with Words TOC field:

    In versions of Word prior to Word 2007:

    1. Go to the point where you want the TOC to go.

    2. Click on the Insert->Reference->Index and Tables menu item.

    3. Select the Table of Contents tab.

    4. Under Print Preview there are a few options you may wish to select or deselect, including one for tab leaders.

    5. Click OK.

    6. This will insert a table of contents field in your document, but since you don't have any entries, you'll see this message:

    Error! No table of contents entries found.

    Not to worry. To make entries, you'll have to use Heading styles. Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 are by default collected for the Table of contents, but you can play around and get others also. There's even a way of putting in entries that aren't flagged by style.

    The Table of Contents also doesn't continually update itself. You have to tell it to whenever you want it to:

    1. Right click in the table and select Update Field.

    2. An Update Table of Contents dialog box will appear.

    3. Click the Update Entire Field button.

    4. Click OK.

    In Word 2007 and 2010:

    1. Click where you want the Table of Contents to go.

    2. Click on the References tab on the Ribbon.

    3. Click the Table of Contents Icon.

    4. Select Insert Table of Contents near the bottom of the list.

    5. Under Print Preview there are a few options you may wish to select or deselect, including one for tab leaders.

    6. Click OK.

    7. This will insert a table of contents field in your document, but since you don't have any entries, you'll see this message:

    Error! No table of contents entries found.

    Not to worry. To make entries, you'll have to use Heading styles. Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 are by default collected for the Table of contents, but you can play around and get others also. There's even a way of putting in entries that aren't flagged by style.

    The Table of Contents also doesn't continually update itself. You have to tell it to whenever you want it to:

    1. Right click in the table and select Update Field.

    2. An Update Table of Contents dialog box will appear.

    3. Click the Update Entire Field button.

    4. Click OK.

    Hope that helps.
