Re-establishing Excel 2007 Links when the file is moved

We have created a network directory, below which are 3 sub-directories.  Below these directories are numerous Excel 2007 spreadsheets.  These are linked to an "overall" spreadsheet.  Due to network inherited right issues, we need to adjust the directory structure of the network directory, thus changing the path file name of the Excel documents.  Is there a way to automatically re-establish the links properly in the overall spreadsheet?

I would do the Replace All here.

Say you had E:\Folder1\Folder2\Subfolder1 and then you have H:\Folder3\Folder4\Subfolder1.

In the overall workbook I would just hit Ctrl+H, and do a replace all from E:\Folder1\Folder2 to H:\Folder3\Folder4.

I believe the user was looking for something a bit more "automatic", but certainly the replace function will work.  They will have to do this at least 15-16 times, because of the number of linked files, but that's better than updating each cell individually.
