Is it possible to send them to the bookmark as described while also attaching an affiliate cookie to their IP? Maybe have the affiliate offer open in a separate tab and the bookmarked part of the hyperlink take them to where I want within my page? Is this possible? Does this even make sense to anyone?

Why when I update all fields in the TOC, does it delete my hyperlinks within the same word document? The TOC links still work.
