Inserting link in Office 2007 Word document?

In a Word document in Office for XP if I type in a URL or email address it immediately turns into a link (Coloured blue). This does not happen with Word in Office 2007. Is this by design and how do I get a URL or email address to appear as a link please?

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Try these steps and see whether it works

In Word 2007, go to Office button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect
Options > AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the box for "Internet and
network paths with hyperlinks
".

Hope this helps,
Captain
