In Microsoft Windows 2000, if you click a hyperlink in a PowerPoint slide show to a Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel file, and Word or Excel is currently open, nothing happens.
NOTE: The link will appear as if it has been followed.
If you click a hyperlink in an Office program, the file that the link refers to is not opened. This is due to a new feature in Microsoft Windows 2000; when you are working in one program, another program will not come to the foreground.
To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
To obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
