Hello everybody,

I work with documents that are saved on another workstation. These documents have links to files that are also located on this "other workstation". There are jpg files for the header and footer.
When I open these documents, my workstation does not recognize the path to the link, as only the local path name is saved. So I always have to go the detour, first save the file locally on my computer, then change the source of the link so that the entire path name is saved to the other PC. Then I can save the document back and the link will be recognized permanently with the entire path name.
Is there a possibility that the full path name is saved when the link is created for the first time? This way, other PCs could also recognize the links in the document.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Hello guest 2005,
instead of the local path, you can also adjust the hyperlink base for the entire document. Microsoft Word Help says:

MS Word Help wrote the following:

Establish a hyperlink base
You can use this procedure to create a hyperlink base for all hyperlinks or URLs in a document (for example, when creating a document for your company's intranet) with all the links going to the same location.

Open the document for which you want to set a hyperlink base.
On the File menu, click Properties, and then click the Summary tab.
In the Hyperlink Base field, enter the path that you want to use for all hyperlinks created in the document.
Note You can override the hyperlink base by entering the full address of the hyperlink in the Insert Hyperlink dialog box.

Here you can set the UNC path to your local PC.

UNC path specification under Windows NT

syntax: UNC path: \ servername \ share name \ path

syntax        description
\\double backslash ( <9> <2>)
Server namemax. 15 characters, name of the computer providing the resource (file, directory, print queue, CD-ROM ...).
Share nameUnder Windows, a resource on another computer can only be accessed via a share.
pathThis information is optional.

Hello amethyst,

sorry for the late reply. The tip helped me a lot and it works. For documents that have already been created, I simply enter the hyperlink base and then just need to adjust the links accordingly. The whole thing works without relocating.
