Maybe it'll help you--but you'll have to test it to make sure.

In xl2003 menus:
File|Properties|Summary Tab|HyperlinkBase
change it to C:\
(something that's always available)

In xl2007:
Click on the Office button
Choose Prepare, then properties.
Then use the arrow on the Document Properties dropdown
Choose Advanced Properties
And then change thehyperlinkbase on the Summary tab.

I like to use the =hyperlink() worksheet function. *It has never failed me this

=hyperlink("file:////yourpathtothe/","Click me")

Tools - Options - General - Web Options - Files - Uncheck update links

pointing to my hard drive; this seemed to work for awhile but not any more.

I have had similar problems with hyperlinks across a LAN. It looks
like the =hyperlink() function will sort it out but I can't seem to
get the syntax with in the brackets right. Any advice?
