I have a form that has about 15 different sections (section headings). Each of those sections displays groups of fields, or certain relevant reports. Is there a way to create hyperlinks that I could place at the top of a form (similar to a navigation bar) that jump to bookmarks in the form so that users could jump straight to a section rather than having to scroll down until they find it? The bookmarks would be the standard section headings in the form.

Thanks in advance.

Here are my notes to myself on how to do his.

Can you return the favor by posting back with the answer to the question to myself in my own notes :)


How to Jump to a spot on a form

The formula-URL to initiate the jump was

"javascript:void(window.location.href='#DealerClaim');"

The anchor tag for where to jump to was a formula-text field with HTML enabled with the formula

"<a name=DealerClaim></a>"

I don't know what happens if you jump to a closed (collapsed) section of a form. Note that if you don't want to allow sections to close, don't give them a name on the form.
