Hyperlinks Keep Changing RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have Document A. 2 pages long and it contains approximately 12 hyperlinks to Document B. Document B is over 1,000 pages long and contains approximately 7,000 bookmarks.

    I insert a hyperlink into document A and it comes out C:\Users\YaddahYaddahYaddah

    I save the document and close. When I reopen the same document the hyperlink no longer works, even though it was confirmed to work before.

    I right click and click on "edit hyperlink". The hyperlink is no longer C:\Users\YaddahYaddahYaddah. Instead it is now ..\..\..\..\..\Actual%20File%20Name\%20\YaddahYaddahYaddah

    What the hell is going on with my hyperlinks and how do I fix it?

    Important notes: other than saving and closing the files after inserting the hyperlink, neither document is changed, renamed or moved to another location in any way. Both word docs are in the same folder, under My Documents on my laptop. There is no external hard drive, thumb drive or anything else.
