    I have Excel charts linked in to a PP. When I copy the directory containing these files, I'm not getting consistent results with updates to the Excel links. Sometimes they are updated to the Excel file in the new directory, sometimes they continue to point to the Excel file in the old directory. I haven't been able to identify what I'm doing differently to produce the inconsistent results. Both Excel and PP are 2002 SP3.

    I know that I can manually check/change the Excel links manually through Edit Links, but there are quite a few charts linked and would prefer not to do this.

    Is there any info on how these links should be maintained (e.g., through file or directory copying) so that they automatically link to the file in the current directory?

    It's best to place the Excel workbooks in the same folder as the presentation. That way, PowerPoint should always be able to find them.
