Default convert hyperlink to url in word by pasting

How can I do this using word?

Copy a news article with a hyperlink.
Paste article into word and have the hyperlink converted to the URL.

I can do this on the Macintosh by...
Pasting article into Entourage.
Copy from Entourage.
Paste into MS word (mac version).
Hyperlinks are converted automatically into URLs.

Thanks,
David Sadler

Paste the hyperlink in, then type a space at the end of it. If Word does
not automatically convert it to a hyperlink, look in ToolsOptions to ensure
the option is enabled.

For more information, see " Turn on or off automatic formatting of
hyperlinks" in the Word help.

Cheers
