Urgent! How to link hyperlinks to files on CD Drive??
Posted on 2004-03-25
I really hope someone can help me with this. I am creating a document at work for training material. This main document is basically an index which hyperlinks to around 250 other word documents.
My problem is, I need to copy the files onto 20 CDs for 20 people with different system settings. Specifically, the hyperlinks point to the other documents located on the CD assigned to D:\.
So, if someone opens the document on their PC and their CD Rom isn't assigned to D:\, the links won't work.
I have considered writing a batch file to copy the directories to their hard disk, however, this is an absolute final alternative and not without it's own problems.
Is there any way to edit the hyperlinks in the index document to point to the CD Rom drive regardless of the drive letter?
If not, any suggestions on how to alternatively link to these files would be greatly appreciated.
