Hyperlinks have allways a leading # in Word


im evaluating Aspose.Words for Java (aspose-words-14.4.1-jdk16.jar) for a migration project. I wanna replace Hyperlinks in documents. I tryed already some of the examples to this topic but i have always the same problem. If i replace or create a hyperlink with aspose, save the document and open it in Word, then the hyperlink target has always the sign # at the beginning. For example i create a new document with this code:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
builder.insertHyperlink(“Testlink”, “…\data\out.doc”, false);
builder.insertHyperlink(“Testlink2”, “http://www.google.de”, false);
doc.save(DATA_PATH + “\TestlinkOut.doc”);

After that i open the document in Word and edit the hyperlinks, then the targets are ‘#…\data\out.doc’ and ‘#http://www.google.de’. I dont understand why, can you please help me?


Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your inquiry.

at my side. For the sake of correction, I have logged this problem in

We apologize for your inconvenience.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-10254) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
