Yes, but I had to cut and paste the whole doc. instead of just the word doc encl like with an ordinary email. Couldn't find a way to attach just the link!

Any ideas? Your dealing with a simpleton here YT although I did try!

I do not think we have the capability to attach a word document. I believe the best we can do is cut and paste.

If all you want to do is post a link, however, that's all you do. Just highlight the address bar, copy, and paste into your PM. Does that makes sense? Is it something from the internet or something in your word program?

You can link to a website but I don't think you can link to an email.

Cut and paste is the way to go.

I'm not sure why you think it's complicated.

Open the document
Press Control-A
Press Control-C

Go to the PM
Click on the Text area
Press Control-V

Done.

Does this look similiar to what your looking for?

You can convert the .doc file to a .pdf file and attach that to a message reply in the forums. However, not sure about replying to personal mailboxes. I don't see the paperclip button over there.

See file I attached.

You have to submit reply or post reply before the link activates. And then you can return and edit if you need.

Not having the facility to do a pdf file I'll stick with copy and paste.

It just seems a long winded way of doing it. and makes the message content much larger.
