Bookmarks in Word give you the ability to link back to them later. In this post I’m going to explain how make a bookmark for income and expense numbers, then link back to them. I start off by creating a table and placing a formula =SUM(ABOVE) in it by clicking formulas from the Layout tab.
After I have the formula, I select the total value for income then click the Insert tab–>Bookmark.
Name the boomark without spaces then click add.
When my insertion point in position, I click Cross-Reference from the Insert or Reference tab. I choose “Bookmark” from the reference type drop down and “Bookmark text” from the Insert reference to dropdown. I also chose the bookmark I want from the which bookmark list.
After clicking “Insert”, the formula value I want is there.
After right clicking the formulas and bookmarks I select update.
Tip: For the quickest way to update everything, select the whole document with Control + A. Then hit the F9 key to update all fields.
