Default hyperlinks in excel2002 won't save correctly

Hi All,

I'm having problems keeping hyperlink paths when i save an excel file as html.

The hyperlink works fine in excel: links to a pdf
"file:///\\server\share\folder\file.pdf" but when saved as html it is just
saved as "folder/file.pdf" I'm using the html on a webserver so need the
entire path.

I tried unselecting 'update links on exit' under toolsoptionsgeneralweb
options, but still the same.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Alastair

I don't know if it will help with this problem, but some problems with
relative links are solved by File Properties Summary Hyperlink
Base : \\SomeJunkServer\JunkFolder

This forces hyperlinks to the same server as the file is saved on to be
saved as absolute.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, unfortunately it still will not work, the HTML code
for each link still reads:

href="folder/file.pdf"

Cheers though,
Alastair.

If you create a new hyperlink, with the hyperlink base set as I
suggested, does it come out right?
If so all we need is to fix up any existing hyperlinks which should be
possible using some code.

Cheers Bill,

With your help I've now solved the problem. I was saving the individual
sheet as html rather than the 'entire workbook'. With the hyperlink base in
place the link in html reads correctly:

<a href="file:///\\server\folder\file.pdf"file</a
