Problem with Hyperlinks within Word 2003 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem placing certain absolute path hyperlinks into an MS Word document on our departmental network drives.  Some links work okay, but others that refer to a specific network drive are unstable. Basically when a document is saved the hyperlink changes to a relative path, instead of an absolute path and the link stops working.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    Simon Murray.

  • are you using the \\servername\share in your link?  do not use mapped drives as not everyone will have the same mappings.

  • Hi,

    Apologies for not responding sooner but I've been on holiday.  The problem appears to happen whether we use \\servername\share or a mapped drive. 

    Regards.

     

    Simon.
