Is there a way to bulk load hundreds of MS Word documents and retain all hyperlinks within each document?

  • You are asking how to ensure that the links still works, right? – Kasper Bo Larsen Oct 2 '18 at 15:35
  • For On-premise:

You can go into Explorer View, and Copy/paste multiple items from wherever using normal Windows methods(right click, Edit/Copy, etc.) The copy/paste only works in Explorer View, not the All Documents view.

  • For Office 365 as well as On-premise:

You can "Sync" the library to your system via One Drive and copy/paste the documents in similar way as that for On-premise.

  • For on prem, while Explorer View works, it can time out if there are a lot of documents or large ones... I have found using Beyond Compare to be a much better option. – Chris Fells Oct 2 '18 at 15:47
  • @ChrisFells You can either increase the limit on the client system by following this link OR use One Drive to copy/paste. – Sohail Shaikh Oct 2 '18 at 16:21
