Hi, guys...long time.

I want to add a link that references an Excel table, but I want it so that
it reads the filtering setting.

Background: I have an Excel that functions as a glossary of abbreviations,
acronyms and terms, defined by a document number.

I have a couple of hundred Word documents, that each may contain 3 to 10 of
the terms in the glossary. I want to include a link that shows only the
terms that happen to be in that document. The next document may have a
different set of entries.

Is there a way of including a link just for that document, simialr to how
you can do a search in Google and capture the lionk that when you send to
someone, they get the same search page.

BTW...the Glossary is in Excel, the documents are in Word
