    To add more to this. This has been this way since day one.
    Office will never parse links like they do on this and other forums
    It would cost too much overhead in the software and is really not a proper or necessary function of Office.
    Plus if you ever work offline, or have internet issues, it could cause too many other issues in general.
    Parsing links for Title info to create a Title hyper link in Office isn't an overall good idea.

    The way David posted to create a Title hyper link is correct.
