    I'm using Office 2007. and I have a Excel workbook that I use to enter data on and from there I use userforms to navagate to different Word document that are linked to this Excel workbook. I have downloaded this program to other computer using the same location on thier computer as mine. that way the links will stay intact and they have worked great. I just tried to download this same program on a Vista program and for some reason the links seem to be broken. is there something different about Vista. I installed all programs in the same location.
    C:\Program Files\My Report Program

    Sorry about the late reply - I was on vacation.

    The Program Files folder has a protected status under Vista - it is for programs only, users can't store files there (or in its subfolders). So you'll have to choose a different path - this would be better under Windows 2000 or XP too.
