Default Numbered Table with hyperlinks

I would like to build a table where each line is numbered - first column
would be the numbers list, which also has a column at the end where I can add
hyperlinks to the lines I want the reader to 'jump' to.

So, for example line '1' would have a hyperlink at the end that would read
'20' and when the reader clicked on the '20', they would jump to that line.

This will be a template document, so I would like the first column of
numbers to be already formatted as 'bookmarks' or 'references' or whatever
they would be, from when the document is opened, so that the person using the
doc doesn't have to format as they go.

Hope that makes sense!

Very many thanks in advance and best wishes

Tara

Default Numbered Table with hyperlinks

Your number column can either be a typed in number, which is then bookmarked;
or you can use a numbered list, these wont need bookmarking.
Then in the Reference column you can have cross-references to the Bookmarks
or the Numbered Items.

You mention that you want this to a "template" so that the user does not
have to change these columns, is that correct?
If you are going to create a table of your 20 rows and this wont change, the
above instructions will work.

If the user is to be allowed to create as many rows as they want, then the
number column would best be a Numbered list, as this will continue the
numbering but the user will have to copy a row or the numbering sequence to
have this continue.
Also the Xrefs will have to be created by the user.

And from your description that the Xrefs not follow a predicable pattern,
this would be very difficult to program as a macro, or possibly a form.

Come back with further information on exactly what you are trying to achieve
and someone here may be able to help.
Hope this helps
