Is there a way to set hyperlinks or anchors for specific words/sections in a word document?

I have to upload some word files to Confluence and would prefer not to do so by 'copy&paste'. Instead, I would like to use the MS Word macro. Thus, I was wondering if there is a way to hyperlink certain words in a word document or use anchors within a word document?

Hi Renato,

would it be an option to "Import Word Document"?

In this way you don't have to "Copy&Paste" but you could use the anchor macro or the table of content or something like this, as you are in natural Confluence content.

As far as I know you cannot use an Anchor or something like this in Word. Even if the Table-Of-Content Macro will list the Headings (if you have used the proper Header-Format) from your Word-File also.
