I have a powerpoint slide that was developed some time ago that has embeded links to excel graphs located on a different network. For some reason, it recently started failing to update the links. Has anyone seen this before. I googled and tried repairing the graph.exe application but it did not help.

Can you physically locate the files that have been linked on your PC using Explorer?
If you cannot do this, the links will not work.
