Is there a way to test hyperlinks between documents in Word or PDF?

I read in the archives that could write a macro, but I thought I'd check to
see there's a plug-in or alternative method available.

If the final format is PDF, testing hyperlinks in Word is of limited value
(as hyperlinks may be functional in Word but not in PDF).

To test hyperlinks in PDFs (internal and external), I highly recommend
ARTS Link Checker (previously Ari's Link Checker from Dionis)
[see for details].
It also checks other interactive items (bookmarks, form fields, page actions).
