    We have a lot of worksheets that have links to other worksheets. The plan is to move all the worksheets to a new server. The discussion now is about the links:
    will they re-link automatically? When I try the scenario, the links will not re-link. When some other people in the group move the source and target files to another location the links seem to re-link.
    I am going crazy!!
    Can somebody tell me please if I am right and no re-linking happens?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi itconc,

    Provided the shortest path between the linked files remains the same, there shouldn't be any problem. For example, suppose the current structure has a file in:
    Server1\Users\Geeks\Documents\System\Accounts
    linked to a file in:
    Server1\Users\Geeks\Documents\Admin\Accounts

    then a change to:
    Server2\Users\Executive\Geeks\Documents\System\Acc ounts
    and:
    Server2\Users\Executive\Geeks\Documents\Admin\Acco unts

    should still work, as the shortest path is still from:
    Documents\System\Accounts
    to:
    Documents\Admin\Accounts
    Cheers,
