Default Drop Down Menus That Act Like Links To Other Parts Of A Document

Hi Everyone,



I have a HUGE Training manual that I want to Navigate Easier. Basically What Im Looking for is a Drop Down Menu at the top of my manual that when I click on one of the options it automatically Scrolls to that Part of the document. I've been scrating my head on this one for a while so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Is there a good reason you can't use a Table of Contents for this? Clicking on a Table of Contents entry ordinarily takes you to the relevant heading.

Mostly because I have a lot of people that don't speak very good English and I want as little clutter as possible

If you don't want a Table of Contents, try using Outline view. Creating a dropdown requires a lot of programming effort for very little gain compared to a Table of Contents or using Outline view and, unlike either of those, is far harder to maintain (and it's you who'd be responsible for the maintenance).
