How do I reset hyperlinks in MS Word to "unvisited"?

Yes, these are hyperlinks in an MS Word document (docx). Don't ask me why.

Is there a history I can clear in MS Word to change the visisted links back to unvisited?

I thought it was linked to your internet history. If you cleared that, I thought it would take all hyperlinks to "unvisited".

I tried that, but it didn't work. So I'm guessing it's somehow stored in the Word doc itself. Ugh.

Okay, I hit the panic button too soon. That does work. I must not have saved and closed and reopened the Word doc. Doh!

Thanks for the help!

Good to hear! I was racking my brain trying to figure out where else it would have stored history information....
