Word - creating relative links to Excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have the same problem as previous poster: 

    "Hi every body, I'm making some kind of Work document template. Data in the document is stored and updated in an Excel workbook. Parts of the word document is "linked" to the workbook's cells, as i copy the cell and paste in the word document. The problem is that the "link" seems to be an absolute path to the Excel workbook, so that the pair of Word document and Excel workbook are not portable. If i copy them to some other places on the computer disk, not to mention to other computers, the links are invalid and the word documents won't get updated at all. Is there any way out of this problem?? Thanks a lot!"


    Macropod has previously posted a link to a solution, but the link appears to be broken - can someone re-post?
