Peter, this is excellent news to wake up to. (it is only 8PM here in Melbourne Australia as I read your email).

Many thanks for your prompt responsiveness.

Regards

Christine

Christine,

We've done just that.  The topic seemed to generate enough interest to

Susan, I understand what you are saying in response to my previous post
however, I do not believe that we should need to be altering the Word
hyperlink style.

Surely, DBT can be programmed to ignore the underlining of hyperlink text
when the text is within DBT set in the compinline codes.  By doing as you
suggest and changing the hyperlink style within the Word template would
affect the visual look of all word documents and to my mind, this would be
completely unsatisfactory.

I hope this makes sense to programmers like Peter and Jo.  I will be
interested to hear your responses.

Kind regards

Christine
